FOURTEEN traveller caravans pulled up on land opposite the new Tesco.com centre in Erith have now moved across the road.

The caravans were moved on by the police but they are now in a car park next to the distrbution centre in Church Manorway just off Bronze Age Way.

A man who didn't want to be named who works near the site said: "The caravans started appearing on Thursday morning.

"There used to be a concrete boulder blocking off the site but that has gone and they have made a right mess of the road where all the caravans have pulled in.

"They have left a lot of rubbish in the car park, it looks like an eyesore."

A spokesman for Bexley Council said: "Approximately 11 caravans moved onto a site at Church Manorway, Erith yesterday with a further three joining them this morning.

"We have been liaising with the police and hope that this matter will be resolved shortly."

Maybe they will take some of the horses that have been left to rot in the local area with them when they go?

i dont know much about Erith but, your above comment makes sense to something my friend said last week. He was repairing a broken lift at a block of flats in Erith a few weeks ago and he said there were horses walking around the green area outside. at first i thought he was winding us up over a pint but now you have said there are horses that have been left to rot i believe him.

I am a resident of Erith and happen to live in a high rise block of flats near the green in question. I can confirm that your friend does indeed speak the truth. On many of trip to Slade Green station to commute to work I often walked past 2 horses.

Don't you just want to take them home with you? Poor things.

On my travels, (no pun intended) last night I noticed around the same number of caravans parked in the car park of Hall Place in Bexley. Where these the same ones? More than likely.
