Another group of travellers has moved on to land in a Suffolk town.

The travellers that moved on to land in the middle of Kesgrave last week there were still there at the weekend.

Now another group has moved on to the Iliffe Way car park in the centre of Stowmarket.

They moved in on Saturday night with seven caravans and about 10 vehicles. They effectively occupy the whole car park which is the long-stay car park for the Museum of East Anglia life.

It is a pay and display car park and also has a recycling centre for bottles, cans and paper – but there was no sign of it being used on Sunday morning.

The car park is on the opposite side of Iliffe Way from the Asda car park and there was no sign that the new neighbours were putting off visitors to the store on Sunday.

Meanwhile at Kesgrave the travellers remained on land near the Farmhouse pub – but local residents said they had heard the group could be planning to leave the area early in the week.
