Letter - Disappointed at times

I WAS disappointed but sadly, not in the least surprised that travellers left Heath Common in a mess last weekend, as every encampment of this type within the Wakefield district results in the council having to foot the clean-up bill, and in local residents being, at best, inconvenienced.

Residents in Lee Moor and Castlegate must have read the news last week with absolute dread, and we can only hope that councillors on the planning committee support these residents by rejecting the current application for a permanent travellers’ site in Stanley.
