But the travellers, who were required to move by 6pm Saturday, have now taken up residence in Horsham Park.

A Horsham District Council spokesman said on Twitter: “We are aware of traveller community who have moved from Trafalgar Rec to Horsham Park and have informed West Sussex County Council and Sussex Police so that notice can be served requiring them to vacate the land.”

A council team are managing the clear up of Trafalgar Rec, the spokesman added.
