FURTHER to my recent letter regarding the awful state of Peel Hall Park in Orford, I can now report that travellers have broken through one of the parks’ barriers and are residing next to the children’s play area at the Cinnamon Brow side of the park.

As if things on the park are not bad enough we will have to put up with the inevitable mess they will make and of course there will be a risk to health and safety and security in the area. I have reported this to the police who can do nothing, in fact if it is to be believed, they directed them onto the park as they were causing an obstruction on the road.

We will now have to wait for the council to serve papers on them, which will ‘take time’. The fact they have broken into the park and are next to a play area should be enough to make council and police take urgent action.
