WARRINGTON Borough Council is set to take legal action to remove travellers from land on Longshaw Street.

The authority visited the council-owned site last Tuesday to carry out welfare assessments before serving a section 77 notice.

But four caravans and associated vehicles remain on the site, which is the location of the proposed Bewsey and Dallam Hub.

A court hearing has been listed for 2pm on Thursday at Warrington Magistrates’ Court.
