Rossendale Council has issued the following update:
The travellers moved off site on Tuesday, January 15th due to impending legal action and a full clean-up operation has now been organised.
They have moved to private land elsewhere in the borough and we have been in touch with the landowners to make them aware and offer advice and assistance. They are now taking action in liaison with the Police.
Throughout the travellers’ stay near Futures Park the Council has remained in regular contact with LCC, who own the land and have been using the proper legal channels to move them on.
