PICTURES: Hundreds of travellers moved on from Southam College

Leamington Editorial 3rd Aug, 2017   0

HUNDREDS of travellers at Southam College have been moved on by police.

Travellers pitched up on the site around a week ago and the college is believed to have employed 24 hour security and additional cameras while they were on the land.

But this morning (Thursday August 3) they were moved on after police enforced an eviction notice.

Vans full of officers and even police dogs were on hand to ensure the operation went smoothly.

It is believed the group of travellers split into two – one heading to Leamington and the other to Rugby.

There are currently caravans pitched up on Fords Fields and at the Recreation Ground in the town.
