A group of travellers who set up camp on playing fields in Mildenhall are being evicted today after the council took action.

Suffolk police are assisting bailiffs and the parish council with the eviction after a number of caravans appeared at the town's Jubilee Playing Fields on Thursday.

Mildenhall High Town Council, who own the land, served a notice yesterday demanding the group left the fields, but have been forced to hire bailiffs after the travellers did not leave.

Mildenhall police tweeted that officers were helping bailiffs and the council with the eviction.

Mildenhall High Town Council did not want to comment while the eviction was ongoing.
