Up to six trailers and other assorted vehicles have been pictured parked at Stanmer Park, near the University of Sussex.

At the time, Labor MP Lloyd Russell Moyle said: ‘We all need to share it and that includes supporting the traveling community.

“They [the Travellers] must also work with the board to ensure that when the right time arrives, they move to the next site.

“The board needs to make sure the sites are appropriate and negotiate a stopping point for them.

“And we all have to make sure the site is clean. This is how you deal with these issues, by all working together.”
