South Kesteven District Council has now taken action to ensure they move on.

A spokesman said: “Notice was served on the group on the afternoon of September 21. It informs of their requirement to leave the site by a specified date.”

Earlier this week, a group of travellers parked up in the car park at the Co-Op store in Market Deeping.
