Leybourne: Residents set up blockade on land off Castle Way to stop travellers

By Natalie Tipping

Residents who are fed up of travellers setting up camp in their village have taken a stand. 

Villagers in Leybourne have set up a blockade to stop caravans parking on land off Castle Way.

The roadblock was set up yesterday afternoon, following fears that travellers would return to the area after being moved on from the nearby K Sports ground in Aylesford, where they've been since Saturday.
