Travellers pitch up in Hatfield car parks
PUBLISHED: 19:26 02 April 2018
Police have been dealing with travellers in Hatfield as families with more than a dozen vehicles looked for somewhere to stop.
Eyewitnesses have described how earlier today, travellers took over a section of Tesco car park in Oldings Corner, Hatfield.
Police arrived on the scene.
A member of the public told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “The individuals were asked to leave by police and shortly after they moved on.
“They then moved to Hatfield cadets car park [Woods Avenue, Hatfield] and police attempted to stop them.
“They attempted to park in Asda Hatfield but they were asked to move on.”
After a brief return to Woods Avenue, it seems the group has now settled in the Link Drive car park in Hatfield.
The member of the public added: “The Link Drive car park usually overfills during a normal working day.
“Currently, they have pitched up on half of the right hand side of the car park, which leaves only the stake park side free but I believe more caravans are to arrive shortly.”
About 15 caravans have been counted at the Link Drive car park, which is a Welwyn Hatfield Council car park.
Herts Police have been approached for a comment.
