Travellers evicted from University of Chichester's tech park in Bognor

A group of travellers who pitched up at the University of Chichester's tech park in Bognor last week were evicted within 24 hours.

The university closed the car park at its multi-million pound technology park in Upper Bognor Road 'due to the presence of travellers' late on Thursday night.
