Travellers are currently believed to be encamped on the George Lambton playing fields in Newmarket.

Police confirmed on Thursday that they had visited the site and provided codes of conduct advice to those there.

Mildenhall police said on Twitter that they were “in communication with our partners to plan for the coming days.”
