Travellers move onto village common

Bucks Free Press: Travellers move onto village common Travellers move onto village common

TRAVELLERS have moved onto the common in Penn Street - but police say they're expecting a short stay from them.

The group arrived in the village last night and pitched up on the common.

Thames Valley Police have said they have been to speak to the travellers and given them 'stern advice' about respecting the land they have set up camp on, which is used by Penn Street Cricket Club.

Officers added they are working with the parish council to ensure the group are moved on swiftly.

Do no farmers have any S**T spreaders available? I'm sure it is time to fertilise the green

the police gace them 'stern advice'. my ar5e. stern advice would be to tell them they better move if they know what's good for them. no doubt they'll leave their cr4p all over the cricket pitch, they need more respect for others.

There is a specific offense of driving onto common land under section 34 of the Road Traffic Act 1988. If the police were to ticket the registered keeper of any vehicle seen on a common then soon the drivers won't be able to drive onto commons as they won't have a license.

Lets man-up and and tackle the problem of damaging public land.

A fair number of travellers' vehicles aren't registered correctly as they're of no fixed abode and therefore above the law (effectively).

Another perk of the nomadic lifestyle...

Hey let's get the groundskeeper to re-cut the creases so that the caravans are the backboard to the crease.

Then we can have bowling and batting practise and whack for sixes at the "backboard".

One can but imagine doing this at 0345AM would be about the right time of day.
