Travellers have moved onto a field in Bridport.

The group of travellers with three caravans has set up behind Bridport Medical Centre, land owned by Bridport Town Council.

They have said one of their vehicles is broken and they are waiting to get it fixed.

Will Austin, town clerk at Bridport Town Council, said: “The council will not take any further action until the group has had the opportunity to get their truck repaired, which they said would be today or tomorrow.

“If members of the public have any concerns, they can contact Dorset Police on 101 or email”

Dorset Police said officers have been made aware of the travellers on the site in West Allington.
