A large group of travellers have left a playing field behind a Southampton leisure centre.

At least 15 vehicles including caravans and cars arrived on land behind Chamberlayne Leisure Centre, Weston Lane, yesterday morning.

Southampton City Council confirmed to the Echo at the time that it was aware of the encampment and was working with partners to decide how to proceed.

Owned by Southampton City Council and managed by Active Nation, the company and the council both told the Echo they were aware of the situation and were working with each other and partners, including the police, to come up with a solution.

Today, it has been confirmed that the group has vacated the leisure centre site. 

It comes after a group of travellers also pitch up in the car park at Fareham Leisure Centre and were moved off the land by Fareham Borough Council.

Travellers have also pitched up in Eastleigh today.
