Travellers on Silver Lane, Risley will be evicted again
1:40pm Thursday 25th October 2012 in News
THE council has confirmed travellers on Silver Lane, Risley, are set to be evicted again.
The group returned to the site they were ordered to leave five months ago in the last week with nearby residents claiming the situation was ‘worse than it has ever been before’.
But a court order secured by Warrington Borough Council yesterday, Wednesday, means the travellers will be forced to leave the land in the next couple of days.
A council spokesman said: ‘We are working in conjunction with partners including Cheshire Police to resolve this situation as quickly as possible.
“We obtained the necessary direction from the court yesterday and will be in the process of evicting the travellers during the next couple of days.
“Our clean up crews are on standby ready for when the travellers have moved on.”
