A GROUP of travellers have set up camp on a city park.

The group of around half a dozen vehicles and caravans are on Dean Park in Weeke, just off Stockbridge Road, Winchester.

They are believed to have previously been about a mile away on the Worthy Lane car park in Hyde.

Winchester City Council tweeted: “We are aware that there are currently travellers at the Dean Park in Weeke.

"We have instructed for welfare checks to take place and are liaising with other agencies."
