BOROUGH of Poole will be seeking eviction orders in court today – if two groups of travellers do not move on beforehand.

Direction Notices requiring them to vacate the sites were served on both encampments on Thursday.

There are four caravans and other vehicles in Hatchards Field and, because of the proximity to the children’s play area, the council has begun the process for an early eviction from the site.

At Baiter car park there are six caravans and one motorhome.

Direction Notices have also been served on them and, if they fail to move, a court order will be sought to move them on.

The two separate groups of travellers moved onto the sites on Sunday evening.
