A group of travellers who pitched camp in Bishop’s Stortford’s Link Road car park have been asked to leave.

East Herts Council owns the mixed long- and short-stay facility, which has 100 spaces.

A council spokesperson said: “We are aware of an unauthorised encampment in our car park on Link Road, Bishop’s Stortford. Notice has been served and we are working with the police to resolve the situation as soon as possible.”

The notice was served to the group on Saturday (Oct 26). Bishop’s Stortford police went along to help. Officers filmed the exchange using their body-worn cameras so that EHC could document that the correct process had been followed.

On social media forums, residents speculated whether the travellers would be issued penalty charge notices (PCNs) for parking illegally.

Readers also wrote to the Indie, and one asked whether EHC would freeze parking fees for others using council-owned car parks in Stortford.

Those questions were put to EHC but a response has not been received.
