Walsall Council has served a notice on the group parked on George Rose Park telling them to leave.

A spokeswoman for Walsall Council said: "Walsall Council can confirm that an unauthorised encampment of 19 caravans, a camper van and seven vehicles is currently at the site.

"Community Protection Officers have served Section 77 notices instructing the occupants to vacate the land.

"Walsall Council will go to court to apply for an eviction order if the occupants fail to comply with the notice."

A group of a similar size parked on the land in January this year and police and bailiffs had to act on a court order to move them.
