A group of travellers caused concern for the council this week when they arrived on an Ilkeston car park, days before the Charter Fair.

Furious residents took to social media to complain about the nine caravans which pitched up on Pimlico last Tuesday and stayed until Thursday, leaving mess behind them for council staff to clean up.

After being served eviction notices and fixed notice penalties by the council, the travellers moved on to private land in the Manners Industrial Estate where they stayed until Sunday.
