Travellers who pitched up at Dunmow last week have been moved on.

The group which took up residency in Woodside Way has now left – the second time in a month travellers set up at the site.

Uttlesford District Council has now arranged to concrete blocks at the access point to prevent them from returning.

A spokesman for the council added the blocks would be replaced with a more secure barrier, which will prevent future encampments.
