Travellers are reported to have set up camp on a former Burnley school site.

Neighbours say travellers smashed their way on to land at the old Ivy Bank High School off Byron Street today.

Around 10 caravans and a number of vehicles have reportedly moved on to the school’s car park.

Officials from Burnley Council and Lancashire County Council are now investigating the matter.
