Travellers have pitched up in a car park near a beauty spot in Felixstowe.

Suffolk police said they are aware of a traveller presence at the Grove Road car park close to the Grove woodland area in the north of the town.

The travellers have moved onto the site despite measures enforced by East Suffolk Council being implemented to prevent large vehicles entering, such as height barriers following a string of similar incidents over the years.
