COUNCIL officials are dealing with travellers who have moved on to a car park in Stroud.
Around half a dozen caravans and towing vehicles have been parked across car parking bays at Stratford Park leisure centre over the weekend.
This morning, Stroud District Council maintenance staff were cleaning up rubbish around the caravans and officials are speaking to the owners of the caravans in a bid to get them moved.
The sudden appearance of the caravans, and rubbish overflowing from bins worried some leisure centre users.
“Some stuff which may be theirs has just been left all over the ground,” said one woman, who did not wish to be named. “I am not against travellers but there has been more rubbish here since they arrived and there are belongings like shoes just in the middle of the car park.”
A council spokesman said the matter was being dealt with and it is expected to issue a statement soon.
