CARAVANS, believed to belong to a group of travellers, have pitched up on Harpenden Common.

The group began to arrive late yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon and remained at the site overnight.

It is thought there are currently 12 caravans on the common and it is not known if more are due to arrive.

Harpenden Mayor, Cllr Michael Weaver, said that the town council would be seeking an order to have the Travellers removed from the site.

“It’s quite likely that they will be on site now for a week, but we hope to get them moved on,” he said.

Police are currently on the scene.
