Travellers have moved onto Brig Royd car park in West Vale.

The council says it is working with the police and monitoring the situation to ensure they move on as soon as possible.

Mark Thompson, Calderdale Council’s director of economy and environment, said: “As soon as we became aware that travellers had arrived at Brig Royd car park we put our procedures into place for dealing with this, and we are working closely with the Police.

“We’ve spoken to the travellers, who have assured us they’re moving on shortly, but we’ll continue to monitor the situation and take action as required to ensure this happens.”
