Travellers have entered the Lakeside site in Theale

Travellers have set up camp on the Lakeside site, off The Green, Theale.

They gained entry by sliding a concrete block that was blocking the access road footway onto the access road itself, then drove over the footway.

There were three caravans, plus associated vehicles, on the site when I investigated this morning. However, experience suggests that others will soon join them unless quick legal action is taken by the landowners.


I have contacted British Land, who own the site, and urged them to take quick legal action to move the travellers on.

I understand that a community-minded resident saw that the site was insecure and re-secured it using a lock and chain. He hadn't seen that travellers had already entered the site as they were hidden from view.
