Travellers have pitched up at a popular park in Ipswich.

Several caravans were spotted at Whitton Recreation Ground between Shakespeare Road and Old Norwich Road today, July 2.

According to Ipswich Borough Council, the travellers arrived at the park at about 11pm the night before.

A spokesperson for the council said: "Ipswich Borough Council are aware of the Travellers at Whitton Recreation Ground and we are taking the necessary steps to regain possession of the land as soon as we can".

In mid-June around 20 caravans moved onto Christchurch Park.

Further reports were made to the council last month at Whitton sports centre and in Chantry Park in May.
