Canterbury: Travellers move onto Tannery Field near Toddler's Cove

By KentOnline reporter

A group of travellers that set up camp near a children's play park in Canterbury has been moved on.

Council officials were alerted early this morning after about 10 vehicles moved on to the Tannery Field, close to the Toddler's Cove play area.

It is believed the travellers forced a gate open to get on to the land, but they left the site this morning.
