TRAVELLER caravans illegally parked in Tesco have been moved on by bailiffs.
Last week, police told the Ely Standard that they could not intervene when travellers parked up on the privately-owned Cambridgeshire Business Park.
Ely police Inspector Adam Gallop said: "We have followed procedures when dealing with unauthorised encampments. It's been agreed by police and councils a balanced approach is required to reduce tensions."
Ten illegally parked caravans left the neighbouring Cambridgeshire Business Park last Thursday after East Cambridgeshire District Council issued two 24-hour eviction notices threatening court action.
East Cambridgeshire District Council is assessing the cost of the vandalism to council property at Cambridgeshire Business Park. No prosecutions have been sought due to lack of evidence.
An East Cambridgeshire District Council spokesperson said: "Travellers have every right to move through the district. But we will take steps to prevent future illegal encampments, by doing things like blocking off the areas they target."
