A group of Travellers has been ordered to move on by the county council after setting up camp in a park and ride near Norwich.

As of Monday morning, around a dozen caravans, motor homes and similar vehicles were stationed on the Harford Park and Ride car park near Norwich, close to the A47.

A spokesman for Norfolk County Council has now confirmed that a notice has been served on the group, ordering them to vacate the site.

"We are monitoring the situation and are liaising with the county council as they assess the site."

It is not clear at this stage how much time the notice gives the group to vacate the car park.
