A community of travellers have been moved on, after setting up camp in a popular Sheffield park.

Caravans and vehicles arrived at the site on Parson Cross Park on Monday evening, with some of the people saying that they had pitched up at the park because they had nowhere to go, and saying they would be there for a few days.

But last night, the park appeared to have been cleared of the vehicles, with no sign of them at the park, when The Star visited.

Earlier in the week, Sheffield Council had outlined a plan to remove them, warning that they faced enforcement action if they remained.
