Travellers set up camp at one of Shrewsbury's most historic spots.

Travellers were seen at Battlefield Heritage Site in Shrewsbury

Caravans, a motorhome and a Ford Transit van were seen in the car park at Battlefield Heritage Site in Shrewsbury on Wednesday morning.

They are camping in the car park next to the site of the Battle of Shrewsbury in 1403.

It is not known why they chose the spot or how long they intend to remain there.

Shropshire Council has been asked for a comment.

It comes after a spate of unauthorised camps in the town.

Late last month the same group of travellers were moved on from a field near Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, Frankwell Car Park and Meole Brace park and ride.
