Field at Kerswell Green, Kempsey, near Worcester, empty after travellers leave
10:41am Thursday 27th September 2012 in News
LAND occupied for just under two weeks by a group of travellers was empty again this morning.
The entrance to the area of common land at Kerswell Green, Kempsey, near Worcester, is after the recent rain now muddy and deeply rutted by vehicle tracks.
The field is littered by plastic bags, broken toys and other rubbish. Parts of a child's trampoline and plastic bin bags have been dumped in a ditch at the edge of the site. However, the mess is not nearly as bad as that left on other sites in the Worcester area on occasions over the last year or so.
A court order had been made on Tuesday ordering the five families and 10 caravans to quit the field, which is owned by Kempsey Parish Council.
The travellers had always made it clear that they would leave when legally required to do so.
