Dozens of caravans set up an illegal encampment on Farr Park on Sunday, May 9.

The area had been damaged with tyre tracks, churned up grass and piles of rubbish strewn across the park.

Around six and a half tonnes of rubbish was removed from the site on Monday.

The local authority had been forced to take legal action after council officers served notice on those occupying Farr Park asking them to move on, but this was ignored.

A number of new secure measures are being considered by the council.
