Around eight vehicles could be seen on the Sainsbury's car park

Around eight caravans and accompanying vehicles were spotted on the Sainsbury's car park on Reedswood Business Park, Reedswood Way, at around 6pm on Monday.

One resident of the area said the vehicles had moved onto the car park overnight, setting up the caravans towards the back of the grounds.

Darren Crabtree, 32, of Leamore, said: "I guess it's a bit worrying when you see them in the main areas like the fields outside your house, but they're pretty well back in the car park there.

"As long as they don't cause any problems it's not an issue, they'll just move on when the council tells them to."
