In the village we live in someone has recently had a horse stolen, my guess says pikey theft, which reminded me of seeing a white Transit parked on the hard shoulder the other day, with the driver standing at the fence looking into the field.
He didn't appear to be having a pee.

'One traveller, who gave his name as John, said their decision to stop there had been prompted by frustration at a lack of permanent traveller sites provided by the county council.'

Should the council not allocate some space for travellers to park legally?

No,they don't tend to do things legally,so why should they be catered for?

If they had a permanent site they shouldn't be classed as travellers and should therefore pay taxes like the rest of us.
