POLICE and Warrington Borough Council acted quickly to ensure an illegal travellers encampment was moved on from St Elpin’s Park.
An estimated eight vehicles arrived on the land on Friday evening but had vacated the site by Sunday afternoon.
It is believed they cut a lock on a park gate to gain access to the site.
The illegal encampment created anxiety for local residents but failed to stop a local community day from taking place, as police and Warrington Borough Council moved quickly to move the travellers off the site.
It is believed to be the same travellers who recently spent time on Silver Lane near Risley.
