Herne Bay: Travellers set up camp on Memorial Park, Herne Bay

By KentOnline reporter

Travellers have set up camp on the Memorial Park in Herne Bay.

Bosses at Canterbury City Council say they are aware "of a traveller incursion" and are working with police to look into the issue.

Earlier on Tuesday, a group of travellers were evicted from Jackey Baker's in Ramsgate.

The Memorial Park was completed in the mid 1930s and opened as a memorial to those who lost their lives in the First World War with names of all the town's war dead on a cenotaph at the end of a tree-line Avenue of Remembrance.

There are also tennis courts and a popular child's play area.
