TRAVELLERS have set up camp on a grass verge near Grappenhall Heys.

A nearby resident said that five caravans and associated vehicles had parked next to a public footpath and cycle lane off Lumb Brook Road.

Warrington Borough Council has been approached for comment.

Plans for a small traveller camp in Burtonwood were approved in June, despite objections from neighbours.

The camp, located on the former timber yard on Penkford Lane, will have space for two static caravans and two touring caravans.
