Travellers who have settled at The Braid, in Amble, have been ordered to move by noon tomorrow.

A spokeswoman for Northumberland County Council said: “We are aware of the travellers and have served a legal notice requiring them to leave by noon tomorrow.

“If this doesn’t happen we will apply to the magistrates’ court for a removal order.

“Along with the police and other partners we are monitoring the situation, including doing welfare checks and providing bin bags and arrangements for them to dispose of their waste.”
