Travellers in Stirchley again

The travellers who seem to have taken a liking to the Madebrook Pools in Stirchley were back again this morning.

Every time travellers set up an illegal camp anywhere on council land it costs thousands of pounds to move them on and clean up after they've gone.

I reported these travellers to Telford & Wrekin Council this morning so the laborious and expensive process of moving them on should have already started.  There is a council-run traveller site near New Works less than 4 miles from Stirchley and a privately-run caravan site in Tweedale less than a mile and a half away.  There is no reason why these travellers need to set up an illegal camp in a nature reserve.
