Travellers at Waterlooville Recreation Ground

The travellers are at the top of the ground in front of the clubhouse.

It is understood that currently all cricket related activities at the club are suspended.

It comes as travellers were turfed off Southsea Common on Tuesday evening.

A flock of travellers were then reported in Gosport by the Grange School on Wednesday morning.

Residents in Gosport expressed their frustration on the Gosport Aware Facebook page.

One said: ‘Where's the police when you need them? Travellers will park up wherever isn't fenced in.’

Another person wrote: ‘Not good for school or the rubbish they will leave round on the grass including dirty toilet paper.’
