A GROUP of travellers who have been living in an Ipswich field today said they would be leaving the site in the next few days.

The Romany travellers have been staying in five caravans on a site behind Gainsborough Sport Centre just off Ravenswood Road.

One of the group confirmed they had been in the area for a few days but were keen to move on to a new location.

A spokesman for Ipswich Borough Council said they were aware the travellers had been living on the site without permission.

She said the council was in the process of issuing procedures to have them moved on from the site.
