TRAVELLERS who moved on to a playing field in Stagholt Lane, Stonehouse have ignored a deadline to leave.

Two of the four caravans which arrived at the site on Friday were still there after the deadline of 2pm today laid down by landowner Stonehouse Town Council.

Stonehouse town clerk Gill Jennings said: "There are two families on Stagholt field at present.  "They were given notice to quit the site by 2pm yesterday but have refused to cooperate. 

"The Council will be taking further action to have the travellers removed."

24 hours to leave, then apply for a court order, which is what? A few weeks? Months? Years?
Wonder what devastation will be left behind.

Highly doubtful that any court order will be obtained. The courts have always favoured the Travellers. And of course the Travellers can take the matter all the way to the European Court of Justice (now the highest court in our new EU country) under the European Convention on Human Rights.

What a surprise.

Can I ask what tax these people pay?
