Travellers are facing court proceedings as the council aims to evict them after setting up a ‘camp’ at a park in Rugby last night (Tuesday, June 20).

Caravans arrived at Criss-Cross Park in Brownsover yesterday evening.

Rugby Borough Council staff spoke to the travellers at the camp today (Wednesday) and served them with a notice of court proceedings for tomorrow (Thursday).

“If magistrates grant our application for an eviction order, we will arrange eviction proceedings,” a council spokesman said.
