Travellers set up camp near airport in Lee-on-the-Solent

Caravans arrived at the Daedalus airport site in Lee-on-the-Solent on Wednesday.

Police officers were alerted to the arrival and have confirmed the travellers have been asked to move along.

In a post online, a spokesperson for Hampshire Police said: “We are aware that a group from the travelling community have set up camp at the Daedalus airport site.

“In partnership with the local council we have been assessing the situation this morning, ensuring we take into consideration the needs of both communities.”

They added: “I can confirm that we have now served a notice under Section 60c of the criminal justice & public order act requesting they leave the site by 11am this morning.

“Police will be carrying reassurance patrols throughout the day.”

It comes after travellers descended on Green Park in Redbridge at the weekend.

But their stay was short-lived as they departed the Southampton green space on Saturday.
