Travellers leave 24 hours after deadline

French travellers have left a hospital car park they have occupied since Saturday, blocking spaces reserved for medical staff.

The travellers were warned to move from the Royal Gwent in Newport by Tuesday or face legal action.

However, some of the 13 caravans remained - and it was only at about 16:00 BST on Wednesday that a procession of vehicles began leaving.

One traveller told BBC Wales they had been waiting for a car to be fixed.
