Campaigners in Warwickshire opposed to a gypsy encampment will push the local council to take action tonight.

Around 50 local residents are expected to attend a meeting in the public gallery at Solihull Council.

R.A.I.D campaigners (Residents Against Inappropriate Development), want the gypsies to leave the site as planned.
