A group of travellers have set up camp on a North Herts District Council-owned park in Hitchin, while another group set up camp in a privately-owned car park nearby yesterday.

A large number of caravans are now occupying Walsworth Common off Woolgrove Road in the town.

This is the second set of travellers to set up in Hitchin this week, as another group parked up in a Wilbury Way car park yesterday.

The Comet is awaiting further comment from NHDC.
