Travellers set up camp outside Northumberland council

A group of travellers have set up camp on land outside Northumberland County Council's headquarters in Morpeth.

Staff at County Hall arrived at work on Thursday, 28th August to find three caravans parked metres from their offices.

The council said they are working with police to resolve the issue. The Gypsy Council, which represents travellers, say that local authorities do not do enough to provide sites for travellers.
