Inspector quashes rumour of Tangmere travellers’ farmer complaint

A RUMOUR has circulated in Tangmere that travellers on the airfield complained about a nearby farmer’s noisy machinery and police told him to start work later in the day.

Inspector Will Rolls said: “This was raised with us by a local councillor, but as far as I am aware, the only conversation that we’ve had has been with the travellers to ensure that they did not obstruct farm traffic.

“We have not had any call or complaint from local residents about such advice being given.”
