Travellers pitch up in Hightown

Concerned residents have contacted Kirklees Council after more than 25 caravans have pitched up on council land next to Hightown Road.

Onlookers saw the travellers enter the site on Friday afternoon, with more arriving on Sunday afternoon.

Kirklees Council is thought to be working with police to remove the travellers from the site.

It is not thought that they are linked to another group who pitched up in Primose Lane, who then moved to Mirfield and Dewsbury last week.
