Travellers moved on

The travellers who had set up camp on Pelsall Common, in the centre of the village, left last night (Thursday).

The group of 12 caravans arrived at the Common, on Norton Road, opposite the old library building, on Wednesday evening.

Walsall Council officials served an enforcement notice at lunchtime yesterday and police also carried out checks.

John Beavon, interim Regulatory Services manager said: “An enforcement was served on the group yesterday afternoon and they had left the site by early evening.”

    Its great news that it has been dealt with so quickly! Its a pity that it cant happen this fast when they are on privately owned land.

    I wonder how much this little event has cost the local council tax payer?
