Reading travellers face eviction

A group of travellers who illegally moved on to a site in Berkshire face legal action to evict them, according to a local council.

About 35 caravans moved on to land between the A33 and Mereoak Lane in Three Mile Cross, Reading.

Wokingham Borough Council served the travellers with a notice to leave on 13 June but they remain on site.

The authority said it had now applied for court proceedings, which are set for Thursday.
