TRAVELLERS who were moved from a council car park near the former East Lancashire Paper Mill site have now set up camp in other areas of Radcliffe.

Yesterday (March 20) caravans were seen on the site of the old Kwik Save in Foundry Street, near the market hall and in the car park in Close Park.

The travellers were previously camped in a council-owned car park in Church Street East, near the now-derelict Papermakers Arms pub, but were served notices by the council to leave by last Wednesday (March 19).

The Kwik Save site is the proposed site for a supermarket retail scheme to be completed by February 2016 as part of Bury Council’s regeneration plans for the town.
