MORE travellers have joined a group who set up camp in a play area.

There are now five caravans on Bitterne Park, off Bitterne Close, which is close to Staunton Country Park, in Havant.

The travellers moved on to the field last Thursday.

The field belongs to Havant Borough Council and is popular with children and families.

The council has sent in officers to assess the travellers’ needs and is trying to evict them.

An application has been made to the courts for an eviction hearing date.
