Court action against travellers in Heckmondwike

TRAVELLERS who have set up camp in Heckmondwike will be given their marching orders on Thursday.

Around a dozen caravans have been on council-owned land in Dale Lane, which borders the cemetery, since last week.

The council has taken legal action to evict the travellers and county court bailiffs will visit the site tomorrow to serve notice on them.

The eviction will take place at 8am on Thursday, unless they leave beforehand.

Another encampment left land at the back of Curwen Crescent over the weekend.
