Hampshire police say they cannot remove the travellers at present, with the group set to remain there over the weekend.

Fareham council leader Cllr Sean Woodward said: ‘When we visited this morning, there was some rubbish lying around. This was a result of foxes tearing the bin bags they had left out.’
