A group of five or six caravans, a wagon and a digger arrived there this evening. Forced the lock on the gate by Upton Cricket Club roundabout. Don't know how long it will take to shift them or if they wil move on of their own accord, but if past experience is anything to go by, there will be a right mess left when they do go. This is such a peaceful green area between Upton and Greasby, it will be a crying shame if they make a mess of it. I don't know what the counci's record is on shifting travellers but the land is leased to the Woodland Trust, so I'm not sure where the responsibility lies.

They left from by butlers skip yard in wallasey about 2 weeks ago leaving behind what I would think to be at least a hundred ton of rubbish and rubble. But hey how someone else can foot the bill to clean it up. Pikey ... !

Perhaps if you build a few authorised permenant sites over there, this upset could be avoided. They would have somewhere to go then.

Oh hold on, you've just given us 1bn....you've no money left. Lol

If you or i forced a lock on a gate to a private area and set up our caravan what would happen ? whatever the action we would receive is what should happen to them, and no i dont think we should set up areas as they dont pay tax so why should we spend our tax money on providing services for them, Have you seen the money these people spend on things ? well maybe they can all club together and buy land to park up somewhere,

Someone has said that they are there legitimately to do work on The Twelfth Man and have had permission to use the Meadow; clarification is awaited on this, as you can't get any sense out of anyone outside working hours, but it sounds a bit far-fetched to me.

The whole idea of travellers is that they want to travel. Not have permanent residence. Makes it easier to evade prosecution in times of trouble ! If you get the meaning ?
It would be beneficial if someone would be able to see their registration numbers, it could be useful when things start disappearing off peoples drives.
I don't like them, and hope they are not allowed to stay there, it's too residential and they need to go further into the country. In fact, thinking about it, they've got a bloody cheek, by walking all over every law in the book that we have to abide by ! A bad precedence set and allowed, as only a matter of time before there will be illegal immigrant travellers.
Hmmm ? Maybe official camps might be the answer and register on arrival. Allowed to sat for a couple of weeks, if that's the life they choose, then move to the next. Maybe you're right Lolli.

If they were legitimate, why would they force locks on gates and be parked up on private land ?

They are not working on the Twelfth Man - someone was taken in by their blagging yesterday evening. Nice try, guys... Police, Woodland Trust and councillors are on the case; rubbish has already been dumped at this lovely spot.

They will be doing the rounds offering rubbish removal and driveways resurfaced. Knocked one back once and he banged his hand into my car as he walked off ...tw*t.
Ok live a travelling life but don't go around conning and ripping off people and leaving each place like a *hithole.

The group has grown. There's going to be an awful mess to clear up when they are finally shifted; they are dumping their sewage, general rubbish, rubble from any work they have managed to do for local people etc. You can bet your buttons they won't be bagging and binning the waste from their dogs, either. Such a blatant disrespect for the land.
