A GROUP of travellers have moved on to a field where homes are set to be built.

Little Frenchies Field in Hambledon Road, Denmead, was the subject of a lengthy campaign against a housing development which was eventually given the green light last year.

Three caravans moved on to the field yesterday afternoon, around 2.30pm.

Winchester City Councillor Patricia Stallard, said: ‘I understand the landowner, Winchester College, has given them 48 hours to vacate the site and if they don’t, they will be calling in the bailiffs on Monday.’

Earlier this week The News reported how the developers, Taylor Wimpey, were breaching planning rules by putting up 20ft signs advertising the development without planning permission.
