A group of travellers who moved from Layhill Covert, off Symonds Road, to Pond Grove Close Open Space, off Barton Road, on Moreton Hall, last week were served with a notice to leave by noon today.

A spokeswoman for St Edmundsbury Borough Council, which owns the land, said 16 caravans were pitched there earlier this week.

She said: “We are taking the issue to court next Wednesday for a section 78 notice to evict them, if they fail to leave.”
