Mi­grant camps have ap­peared across the city

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

A SE­RIES of squalid camps hous­ing home­less im­mi­grants in the city have been re­ported since the ex­pan­sion of the Euro­pean Union in 2007.

In May 2009 a mi­grant camp was burned to the ground in a shel­tered wooded area next to Flet­ton Lake.

Last De­cem­ber mi­grants set up camp in wood­land at Cygnet Park in Hampton.

In March the ET re­vealed that im­mi­grants were liv­ing on the Boon­gate round­about.

In April six East­ern Euro­peans were evicted from a camp­site near to Pot­ters Way in­clud- ing a kitchen and wardropes.

Later that month Czech im­mi­grant Joszef Sz­abo ad­mit­ted he had been liv­ing in Lin­coln Road res­i­dent Ian Trea­sure’s back gar­den for six months.

The story made na­tional news and prompted the UK Border Agency trial.
