THERE will be an element of ‘I told you so’ from residents and councillors in Creekmoor today.

Travellers finally left the park and ride site there at the weekend, but also left piles of rubbish strewn around the ground.

Council workers will be down there to begin the clean-up operation.

And it will be the hard-pressed taxpayer who will have to foot the bill.

The way forward is, as Cllr Judy Butt suggests, for Dorset councils to share transit sites.

But at the moment that is still a long way off.
