Travellers spotted in a field in Crayford yesterday (August 27) are said to have moved on to Foots Cray Meadows.

They settled this afternoon on the North Cray Road side of the meadows.

Sally Lands, 48, a committee member of Friends of Foots Cray Meadows, said: "They shouldn't be on land that is designated for use by the public.

"It is a nature reserve, dog walkers use it. Also it can be quite intimidating for families living nearby.

"It's a shame because we work so hard to get the parks up to a certain standard."

A woman said yesterday 100 caravans were parked in a field near Maxim Road, Crayford, opposite Sainsbury's supermarket and the greyhound stadium.

It would be interesting to see what happens if they all pitched up in a wealthy area in central or north London where MPs etc have homes. In fact I hope they do as it may wake up some in power.

Cutting edge reporting. FOUR HOURS before this was posted the police, ward security & the council had evicted the caravan & their occupiers.
