Concerns over resident safety grew after a community of travellers was spotted entering the Sainsbury's car park at Reedswood Business Park, Walsall, on Monday morning.

Around eight caravans and accompanying cars were spotted setting up at the rear of the large car park, with one resident saying the group moved onto the site sometime over the weekend.

Speaking on the sudden move-in, a spokesperson for Sainsbury's, said: "We are working with local authorities to resolve the situation at our Reedswood store."
