AN ILLEGAL encampment at a busy supermarket has now been moved.

Travellers set up camp in the car park of Lidl in Droitwich, off of Kidderminster Road in Droitwich, and were allegedly blocking the entrance.

An eyewitness said: "Travellers have parked up at Lidl so shoppers cannot access the car park."

A store manager at Lidl declined to comment about the incident but Lidl's head office confirmed that it was aware of trespassers who were occupying a section of the store yesterday evening (Wednesday, August 23).

The relevant authorities were notified and the encampment left this morning.

Lidl also confirmed that trading was not impacted and the store remained open as usual.
