A huge group of more than 30 travellers’ caravans have moved onto land in Bocking.

The group began arriving on a stretch of land, near Convent Lane, from around 4pm on Sunday.

Caravans kept arriving until around 8pm the same evening.

One resident, who asked not be named, said: “They just did not keep coming.

“I counted them on Monday morning and I saw 37 caravans.”

The landowner is said to be aware of the encampment.
