A local resident showed us the evidence of some people who had set up a ‘camp’ in the undergrowth of the open land behind the resident’s garden. They had reported noise and nuisance from what appeared to be a group of younger people. The pictures below give an impression of the resulting mess left behind.
Councillor Katrina Trott reported it to the Community Safety Team, local police and the Two Saints outreach officer. PC Graham and Outreach worker Nicole Jones investigated. The youngsters were known to Two Saints and preferred ‘living rough’ rather than being with their parents. They were not homeless.
The site was cleared away within a few days, much to the relief of the residents.
