TRAVELLERS have set up camp on a piece of green land on the edge of the city.

Winchester City Council is currently carrying out welfare and legal checks on the group, who are occupying land in Winton Close off Andover Road.

It comes just days after Travellers were moved on from the South Park and Ride site in the city.

On Friday morning, Winchester City Council tweeted: "The Travellers occupying the South Park and Ride car park have now vacated the site. Many thanks for your patience."

The group arrived at the park and ride car park on Wednesday.

It is not known if the Travellers in Winton Close are the same as those who occupied the park and ride site, or when exactly they arrived in Winton Close.
