Travellers have been spotted in the car park of a Blackfen supermarket.

Customers saw the group park four caravans at the Co-op store in Westwood Lane at 2.15pm today (February 17).

The travellers reportedly asked staff if they could stay there for the night, but were told to leave.

They left the car park an hour later.

A spokesman for the Co-op Blackfen branch said: “They were there for an hour and we had two shoppers tell us that they were parked outside.

“One of the travellers, a lady, came in to ask if they could stay there overnight.

“We said that they couldn’t and then they went on their way.”
