The travellers, who set up camp in the park a few days ago, were served a section 61 notice by Sussex police and have until 4pm tomorrow to vacate the premises.

“It is disappointing that travellers have once again broken into open space at the expense of the general public,” the spokesperson said. “Our grounds maintenance teams are on standby to rectify any damage that may have resulted.”

Sussex Police has been approached for comment.
