A group of travellers who set up camp at the Museum of East Anglian Life car park in Stowmarket have moved to Gun Cotton Way near Cedars Park.

A Mid Suffolk District Council spokeswoman said it was now dealing with a single unauthorised encampment in the town.

She said: “All earlier encampments have now moved on.

“The encampment at Gun Cotton Way is still being dealt with in accordance to the Suffolk-wide protocols on unauthorised encampments and in partnership with ourselves, the Gypsy and Traveller Liaison Service and Suffolk Constabulary.”

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Police said the camp was more than 100 metres away from any houses in the area.
