Travellers are back on Silver Lane, Risley
12:04pm Wednesday 24th October 2012 in News
TRAVELLERS have returned to the spot they were ordered to leave by the council five months ago.
The group, which has set up camp off Silver Lane, Risley, left the site in April this year after Warrington Borough Council secured an order from Warrington Magistrates Court.
But nearby residents were despaired to see the travellers have returned in the last week and the situation is ‘worse than it has ever been’.
One disgruntled homeowner added: “There are more than 35 caravans parked on the public footpath completely blocking it.
“There are also horseboxes parked on the other side of the road and their associated vehicles parked all over Silver Lane.
“It is totally impassable by vehicle and it would be impossible to now drive down Silver Lane.”
Residents are now waiting to see what action the council will take next.
