Legal action is underway to move an illegal traveller site in Bilton.

Travellers set up camp on fields between Frobisher Road and Somers Road at the end of last week.

A spokesman for Rugby Borough Council said: “There is a complex legal process we have to follow in order to move the illegal encampment on.

“This was initiated over the weekend. When we have a court date we will be able to apply for the necessary order.”
