Park targetted by Travellers reopens

Bretton Water Park is due to reopen today.

It was shut for the last few days after a group of travellers moved onto the site.

Peterborough City Council gave Connect FM this statement:

“The group of travellers have left Bretton Park and teams will be cleaning the area with the view of re-opening the water park as soon as possible.

“Locks on a gate onto the park had been forced but we are still investigating whether this is how the travellers gained access. A meeting on improving defences for Bretton Park, with a range of partners and keyholders, will be arranged. New locks have been installed on the gate.

“The travellers left after they were issued with a direction to leave from the council. However, we now believe the same group has moved to an area in Orton Brimbles. We will be on site to carry out health and welfare checks and will then begin the eviction the process.”
