Travellers have parked up on the playing fields at Dorchester's Thomas Hardye School.

Over 10 caravans and other vehicles are now on site, with laundry strung up between goal posts.

Unauthorised traveller camps have been set-up in Weymouth and Poundbury the past week.

A number of caravans left a playing field in Poundbury last night (Monday 12th August) after the local authorities stepped-in.

Recent pitches on playing fields and car parks have led to calls for a clampdown on travelling families and the County Council is due to revisit plans for temporary sites.
