Travellers who were given a day to leave a Great Yarmouth car park have now moved on to a site five minutes down the road.
Great Yarmouth Borough Council yesterday asked magistrates to agree to an eviction order for the group, who had been encamped at the Marina Centre car park for nearly a week.
Now, six caravans and towing vehicles belonging to the group are parked in Bloomfield Road, off South Beach Parade near the power station.
The group were served a notice to vacate the leisure centre car park yesterday evening at 5pm and they moved soon after, leaving the site clean and tidy.
A spokesman for the borough council said they were aware of the new encampment and added he had informed the county council as they have responsibility for dealing with encampments on the highway.

A borough council officer visited the Travellers at the Marina Centre site last week, along with a representative from the county council's Traveller liaison team, to make sure they had their educational and health needs met.
The car park's ticket machine was covered up until the Travellers had left.
