Travellers who set up camp in a car park in Chesterfield have moved on.

More than a dozen caravans arrived at Queen’s Park car park on Sunday (October 21).

This sparked a furious reaction from residents on social media who demanded to know why the travellers had not been slapped with parking fines.

Chesterfield Borough Council served the group with a Direction to Leave notice and a spokesman for the authority confirmed the travellers had left the site this afternoon.
