LEGAL action will be taken to evict a group of travellers who have set up camp in Sandal.

Wakefield Council confirmed they are seeking an order to evict a family after they arrived on land at the junction of Chevet Lane and Walton Station Lane, on Monday.

Police have spoken to the travellers after calls from worried residents.

PC Jack May, of the Rural Neighbourhood Police Team, said: “ Some residents were concerned there would be an influx of travellers. But this doesn’t appear to be the case.”
