Travellers moved on to a local rugby club after spending nearly a week at a park in Stow.

Around a dozen caravans arrived at King Georges Field last Friday.

Stow Town Council served the group with an order to leave on Wednesday, and they departed sometime after.

Gloucestershire police have confirmed the group then moved to Stow Rugby Club but have left this morning (Friday July 29).

Speaking before they left the park, a police spokesperson said: "Police received a number of reports of travellers on King George Field and around the Stow area causing anti-social behaviour over the last few days.

“Officers have liaised with the residents, travellers and the owners of the land and maintained a presence in the area to provide reassurance."

On Monday, July 25, a car and 200 metres of stubble caught fire.

A team of 15 firefighters was called to King Georges Field at 10pm to battle the blaze.

GFRS has said that an investigation into what caused the fire is ongoing.
