Speaking at the time of their arrival, one of the travellers, Adol Jordan, said: ‘We’re here on holiday from France. We don’t know where we will go next, maybe London. We don’t know how long we will stay (in the UK) but the weather is not very nice.’

After saying they would be staying in the area for a ‘few days’ they have been true to their word and have now moved on to pastures new.
