Residents believe new travellers' sites won't solve problem

"It's more or less all cut and dried I think before the meeting were even held. I think the council have more or less made up their mind - this is just a show really this is just a front but theres a lot of objection to it"

Dave Lines, opposes the proposed travellers' sites

"No one in the area wants it - the thing is the three sites they're on about are all within a one mile area, that's ridiculous"

Keith Lines, opposes the proposed travellers' sites

"The thing is even if they set up these three sites, they're still going to get travellers coming here, we're still going to get travellers pitching their caravans on the grass verges on the Red Hill roundabout. It's not going to change anything"
