TRAVELLERS have turned up on council-owned land in Fareham.

The group has settled on land next to Fareham Leisure Centre in Park Lane. Fareham Borough Council said it is working to remove the group within a week.

Council leader Sean Woodward said: ‘I have heard from a number of residents who walk at that site daily. They are most upset about it because they feel intimidated. Our zero tolerance to travellers continues. We will have them gone within a week.’

Resident Jennifer Zeffertt, 70, said: ‘It’s a problem that needs to be addressed in discussion with the traveller community.

‘In the aftermath the grass will be turned up, there will be rubbish left and I don’t even want to mention toilet facilities.’
