Travellers camp on Morecambe industrial estate

TRAVELLERS camped out on the car park of Vickers Industrial Estate over the weekend whilst they were attending a wedding.

Shoppers who arrived on Saturday and Sunday were greeted with a dozen caravans covering the right-hand side of the car park, with washing lines up and wires trailing from generators.

One man who was visiting Matalan on Saturday said: “I felt quite intimidated and shopkeepers kept looking across the car park and muttering.

“I went to Salt Ayre a couple of years ago and the travellers were camped there as well. I felt intimidated then.”

The travellers moved off the site on Monday and staff at nearby Wickes said they hadn’t caused any trouble.
