Travellers arrived at Bexhill Down yesterday evening (Tuesday May 26).

Around a dozen caravans plus some other vehicles pitched up on the cricket and football pitches at around 9pm.

A number of people called police to report the travellers’ arrival.

A spokesperson from Sussex Police said: “Officers attended the site with Rother District Council representatives on Wednesday morning.

“It is expected that the travellers will be served with a notice to leave in due course.”

The land is owned by Rother District Council.

The local authority has yet to comment.
