TRAVELLERS were quickly moved on after eight unauthorised caravans were spotted in the William Hunter Way car park.

The caravans were reported to Brentwood Borough Council around 7.30am yesterday, but were moved off the site by council officers by lunchtime, around 1pm.

Tory council leader, Louise McKinlay, tweeted her thanks to the prompt response from the council team. She said: “Thank you to council officers dealing with travellers on WHW and Town Hall car parks. We’ll be starting court proceedings tomorrow (Monday).”
