Calderdale Council has vowed to take action to move travellers from an old garage site in Halifax.

The camp has been set up on the former Sunwin Garage site at the junction of Queens Road and Parkinson Lane.

Calderdale Council’s Head of Neighbourhoods, Andrew Pitts, said: “We are aware that a group of travellers have moved onto privately-owned land on Queens Road.

“We are working closely with the Police and landowner to try to ensure the travellers move on swiftly. We will continue to monitor the situation and respond appropriately.”

A group of travellers were recently removed from Savile Park last month.
