TRAVELLERS have set up at a car park in the New Forest.

Caravans occupied part of the parking area between Lyndhurst Community centre and the New Forest Centre, which houses an exhibition area and a reference library.

A district council spokesman said: "Nine caravans arrived at Lyndhurst coach park yesterday at approximately 3pm.

"We attended and spoke to them yesterday late afternoon.

"We have been working with the travellers and the police today.

"The travellers have agreed to move on. By 4pm today four caravans remained, which we expect to depart shortly."
