Weapons search after ‘fight’ at traveller site

POLICE sealed off a travellers’ caravan park off Mellishaw Lane to search for weapons after reports of a “large scale” fight on the site.

Officers were called to the park at around 11.30am on Tuesday after reports of a disturbance.

Police surrounded the perimeter and carried out searches on the park believing that weapons may have been used during the fight.

An eye-witness reported seeing a group of people - some wielding knives - pull up at the site in a car before police arrived.

There were no serious injuries.
