Highways officials have confirmed they are aware of traveller caravans on a roadside verge in south Hatfield and considering what to do about them.

Caravans appeared over the weekend by the side of Comet Way, near the Ramada “Comet” Hotel, possibly the same group that left Hatfield Garden Village on Thursday.

A spokeswoman for the county council, which is responsible for road maintenance, said: “We are aware of an unauthorised encampment of three caravans currently on the grass verge alongside Comet Way and are investigating the circumstances surrounding their situation..

“A decision will be made in relation to their removal following this investigation.”
