POLICE officers have been called to Bents garden centre following an unauthorised traveller camp.

Caravans reportedly pitched up at Bents Garden and Home in Glazebury yesterday, Wednesday, July 4.

This is according to an unauthorised encampment log for Cheshire and Warrington operated by Cheshire West and Chester Council.

The new encampment was uploaded onto the log by the Cheshire and Warrington Traveller Team in the past 24 hours.

The log adds that Cheshire Police was to attend the privately-owned site, on Warrington Road, to speak to the occupants of the three caravans and associated towing vehicles.

It is the latest in a spate of unauthorised traveller caravan camps around the region of late.

Travellers had been served notice after setting up camp on a town centre carpark in Leigh last month.
