Little Church Street is now re-open to traffic after an incident involving a group of travellers blocked the road earlier this afternoon (Thursday).

Eyewitnesses say that police stopped the travellers as they tried to gain access to the locked grounds of Herbert Grey College at around 3pm (pictured).

A convoy of caravans then blocked access to and from Little Church Steet in the town centre, in what appeared to be a stand-off with police.

Three large removal trucks were also spotted on site.

The Advertiser has approached the police for comment but at the time of writing, we have not received a response.
