A group of travellers who set up camp in Great Yarmouth have now left the site, with a convoy of around two dozen vehicles heading down the Acle Straight Norwich-bound.
The group had moved onto the Barnard Bridge playing field, owned by Great Yarmouth High School, last Sunday afternoon.
They were then joined by another group on Monday who brought horses with them.
Although the first group were served with a court order to leave by 6pm today it was unclear whether the second group would move on, but all the caravans left around 5.30pm.
Yarmouth MP Brandon Lewis said it was wrong for society to clean up the mess left behind by the travellers.
'It is totally unfair on local people to have an incursion like this which causes such severe disturbance and mess,' he said. 'I will support the authorities to ensure this is resolved... and the mess cleared.
'It is wrong that society is left with the cost of repairs.'
