Councillors seek permanent traveller ban

A temporary injunction was granted in March Credit: ITV Anglia

Councillors in Harlow will be at the High Court today to try and make a temporary ban on travellers permanent.

An unprecedented interim injunction on illegal sites was granted in March preventing travellers from setting up illegal sites across the whole town.

The injunction application seeks the same protection as the interim injunction and would ban 35 named people from setting up unauthorised encampments on any land in Harlow.
