    A Southport town centre councillor is 'disgruntled and perplexed' at the ease with which it appears that a group of 'Travellers' have managed to park their caravans on the town's Princes Park.

    Councillor Tony Dawson has asked senior council officers to explain how the 'travellers' brought their fleet of large wagons on to the park - and for assurances that appropriate action will be taken to prevent any recurrence. He says:

    "Princes Park is a large open flat green site, obviously highly-desirable to any travellers looking for a summer camp in a premier location in our resort. So, I would expect the Council to recognise how vulnerable the Park is to potential invasion by unauthorised travellers. and take appropriate security measures such as locking gates etc."

    "If the gates have been left open in error, I would trust that the Council makes absolutely sure this never happens again. But, if there is criminal damage involved, as happened when 'Travellers' invaded the Blind School site on Oxford Road last year, then I would hope that appropriate action will be taken."

    It surely is very difficult to secure the site as access is required, by members of Bowling Clubs, who travel to Victoria Park to play their match games against Victoria BC.

    The travellers are not going to be happy there - they are far too much in the public eye! Everyone can watch and photograph their comings and goings.
