He said: '˜I have lived here for 14 years and never seen it so it was quite a surprise.

'˜They were arriving when I left the allotments at around 2pm this afternoon '“ at the time there were only two vehicles but a third one has now arrived too.

'˜When I was driving past the police were already speaking to them.

'˜I'm a little bit worried about the allotments and the contents of the sheds that are there.'
