Four garbage trucks removed from three passenger sites Brighton News

FOUR trucks full of garbage were evacuated from three traveler camps left over the weekend.

The Adur and Worthing Council teams spent eight hours cleaning up the trash left by the groups.

Sharing photos on social media, cleaning crews were forced to remove plastic bottles, garbage bags and even rugs from the stables at Lancing Manor, Goring Greensward and Lyons Farm Open Space.

Writing on Facebook, a spokesperson for the council said: “Our cleaning and garbage crews have been busy over the weekend cleaning up trash left at three separate traveler camps.

“It took the crews a total of eight hours to remove four trucks of debris.

“They were supported by teams from the coastal office, parks and the technical services of the municipalities.

“We also thank the Sussex Police and West Sussex County Council for their assistance throughout the weekend.”

The cleanup comes days after Sussex Police blocked Marine Drive, Ferring, between Sea Lane and Aldsworth Avenue after the trailers started arriving at Goring Gap on Friday.

Photos taken on the site show the caravans and other vehicles parked at the getaway site, which welcomes thousands of visitors each summer.

Last month, The Argus reported how trailers on the site received notices ordering them to leave.

A court hearing was set for Wednesday, April 28, which would have given the power to enforce the notices if the trailers did not free themselves of their own accord.

At the time, West Sussex County Council said it was continuing to monitor the site, along with Sussex Police.
