A group of travellers have set up camp on a Chesterfield town centre car park.

The group of 12 caravans appeared this morning on the privately run Brittania car park on Hardwick Place near the Holywell Cross roundabout.

The police have been in attendance and were informed by the group that they would be moving on later today.

As the car park is privately run it is up to its owners, Chelverton, to follow the legal procedure required to remove them from the site.

More on this story will follow as and when we get it.
