Helen Jones, a campaigner at 'Leeds Gate,' an organisation which campaigns to improve the quality of life for Gypsy and Traveller communities, told us:

"It's not against the law to lead a nomadic lifestyle and the UK Government have to facilitate those who wish to lead such lifestyles. Local authorities, too, have a duty to identify need and provide stopping and permanent sites. Yet year on year we're not being allocated land and we should not be surprised therefore if we find travellers using land that is not appropriate to do so."

– Helen Jones.

It comes after a school in Birmingham was forced to partially close after travellers on the car park refused to move on.

Helen Jones of Leeds Gate previously told ITV News that Councils should provide toilets and skips when travellers occupy their land.

Leeds Gate is an organisation for Gypsy and Traveller people who say their aim is to improve the quality of life for people of such communities.
