Travellers who had set up camp at a park and ride site on the edge of Norwich have moved on after court action was taken.

The group arrived on Norfolk County Council-owned Harford Park and Ride on Firday, May 25.

A criminal summons for the travellers was brought about by the council after they failed to leave by Tuesday, May 29.

The order to remove them was enforced at Norwich Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, with the group, along with their vehicles, told to leave under the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994.

And the group has now moved on. A spokesman for Norfolk County Council, said: 'The group who were ordered to vacate the Harford Park and Ride site have complied with that ruling.'
