Travellers have settled on the rec ground at Churchfields Road in Beckenham.

Pictures have been seen on social media of the front gate broken. Bromley Council will seek an order to remove the encampment.

Police are aware:



We will have to wait and see what condition land is left in. On prior occasions some encampments have seen rubbish and mess left behind. Will the police and council officials arrest or fine those leaving if rubbish left on site and check all vehicles for tax and insurance?

Bromley Council have made a big song and dance about fining individuals for leaving mess on land recently. Let’s see what they do here.

If they do not then accusations of double standards will surely follow, and problems will simply continue elsewhere.
