A GROUP of travellers remains on a camp set up on land next to Worcestershire Royal Hospital in Ronkswood, Worcester.

About four or five vans have parked up on the land off Newtown Road, although there have currently been no complaints to police.

The group arrived on Saturday. 

It is unclear whether they are the same group which pitched up alongside the A4440 Broomhall Way on Worcester Southern Link road earlier this month.

Your Worcester News was contacted by reader Alex Hill who contacted this paper to voice his disapproval.

"They are already making a mess and defecating in the field next to County Hall," he said.

A West Mercia Police spokesperson said the traveller camp had been reported to them.

She said officers were due to speak to members of the camp to ask them how long they intended to stay.

Worcestershire County Council, meanwhile, said it was aware the travellers were there but said there was little they could do.

"We are happy to assist the landowner but it is not within the remit of the county council to take action," said a county council spokesperson.
