Travellers leave Gainsborough leisure centre after six days

This story is over

A group of travellers have belatedly left the fields at the West Lindsey Leisure Centre in Gainsborough, six days after first arriving.

Around eight caravans moved on from the site on the morning of June 15, after West Lindsey District Council was brought in to attempt to remove them.

A post on the West Lindsey Leisure Centre Facebook page said: “We can confirm that the travellers have now left the car park.

“The car park is now fully accessible, we would like to thank all customers and visitors for their patience and cooperation over the past six days.”
