It has been confirmed that vehicles seen at Hamworthy Park are a legitimate funfair, which is running from August 2 to August 11. We apologise for any confusion caused. 

TRAVELLERS have set up camp on Hamworthy Park.

The arrival comes despite efforts by Poole council to lock down sites that were at risk of illegal encampments. 

The Borough of Poole said this morning it was aware of the camp and was sending staff to the site.

It comes on the same day the council received a court order to evict travellers from land near the Staples car park on Fleet Lane. Officials were due to serve the order on the camp there later this afternoon.

Travellers were moved on from Hamworthy Park in May after Poole council served a court summons on the camp
