TRAVELLERS have set up camp on a Burnley recreation ground.

Around 20 vehicles are currently parked on Stoneyholme Rec, off Rectory Road, with the group telling police and council officials they are on their way to a religious festival in Accrington.

Burnley Council is in the process of obtaining a court order to remove them from the site.
