Travellers remain pitched up at a park in north-west Ipswich a week after their arrival.

Caravans parked up at Whitton Recreation Ground, between Shakespeare Road and Old Norwich Road, at 11pm on Friday, July 1.

An Ipswich Borough Council spokesman said on Friday: "The council continues to take all necessary steps to regain possession of Whitton Recreation Ground."

The travellers' arrival comes after about 20 caravans moved onto Christchurch Park, near Ipswich town centre, in mid-June.

Further reports were made to the council last month of travellers at Whitton sports centre, as well as in Chantry Park in May.
