TRAVELLERS that set up camp in Bournemouth town centre have now moved on.

On Saturday morning, several motor homes arrived at Bath Road South car park, causing it to be closed until Sunday to prevent a further incursion.

The council was set to apply for a court order to remove them yesterday, but they left of their own accord.

Likewise, the three motor homes that arrived on the cliff top behind the Bournemouth International Centre on Friday have also departed.

They had gained entry thanks to an insecure barrier and the council began legal proceedings, but that group has also now left.
