Council bosses are to go to court tomorrow in a renewed effort to evict travellers from playing fields in Bury St Edmunds.

St Edmundsbury Borough Council is to apply for a section 78 notice giving the travellers 24 hours to leave the site, in Heldhaw Road.

If they fail to go, the authority can take enforcement action against them.

The council had served them with a section 77 notice last week and expected them to leave last Friday, which they failed to do.

The section 77 notice prevents the site from being occupied by them for the next three months.
