TRAVELLERS could face arrest if they fail to leave Moss Bank Park.

Police served the group another 24-hour notice after they failed to vacate the beauty spot yesterday.

More than seven caravans and other vehicles set up camp on the park on Tuesday.

Bolton Council served the first 24-hour notice on Tuesday and the police followed suit at 11am yesterday.

A police spokesman said: “A notice has been served and they have been requested to leave by 11am.

"If they fail to do so they could be arrested under Section 61 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act. ”

Residents have been warned not to offer any work to door-to-door traders who could be staying at the site.

Arrest the lot and protect the rest of us - these parasites aren't romantic carefree fresh-air-loving guardians of nature, they're criminal scum whose only expertise is in playing the decadent system while laughing at the rest of us that pay for their lifestyle in between wringing our hands over how not to offend their protected minority sensibilities....Grr

I do hope the police attempt an arrest. There will be none of the beatings normally meted out by the police against non-resistent members of the public.

I would pay to watch such attempted arrests...
