Travellers who set up camp on tennis courts in Normanton have been moved on.

Around ten caravans moved onto the courts in Haw Hill Park on Tuesday night.

Wakefield Council moved the travellers from the site at around 5pm on Wednesday.

Martin Womersley, Wakefield Council’s street scene manager, said: “We were aware that a group of travellers moved on to the tennis courts in Haw Hill Park Normanton late on Tuesday evening. The street scene team has been working with our colleagues and partners and have removed them from the site. Once the site was clear, street scene was able to clear the litter and waste left behind.”
