A group of travellers have moved on to a football pitch in Sheffield.

Several caravans and cars have been parked on the playing field on St Aidan’s Road - with Sheffield Council now making efforts to get them to leave.

Coun Terry Fox, cabinet member for Environment and Transport, said: “We know about the travellers at the football pitch on St Aidan’s Road.

“We have been to see them and expect the group to move on within days as this is not an authorised site.

“We will be monitoring this.

“This approach has always worked in the past but we will pursue legal action if needed.”
