Almost a year to the day since travellers moved onto privately owned land adjacent to Hanwell Fields housing estate they have returned.

Entrance to the site, between the turn offs to Winter Gardens Way, appears to have been made via a gateway that looks damaged.

Police were on the scene at 2.55pm.
