Travellers leave seafront site

A group of French travellers who set up camp in a seafront car park left on Friday morning.

The group had moved along the coast from Bexhill to Eastbourne and several caravans and cars drove into the car park at the South East Water Treatment Works in Prince William Parade on Wednesday morning.

Officers from Sussex Police and council officials met with the group for talks throughout the day on Thursday and on Friday afternoon the convoy agreed to leave the site.

They are believed to have made their way up to London.
