Around a dozen white car­a­vans ar­rived at the site, ad­ja­cent to the Arena Leisure Cen­tre, overnight on Mon­day March 20.

The in­cur­sion was re­ported on the morn­ing of Tues­day March 21 when mem­bers of the pub­lic strug­gled to park.

As the landowner, Sur­rey Heath Bor­ough Coun­cil served a mem­ber of the con­voy a no­tice be­fore seek­ing a court or­der on Wed­nes­day March 23.

A coun­cil spokesman, speak­ing on Thurs­day March 24, said: “The trav­ellers who were at Arena Leisure Cen­tre car park left the site last night.

“Of­fi­cers are there today, en­sur­ing the site is clean and safe.”

In Novem­ber last year, trav­ellers in Guild­ford twice caused a stir when they ar­rived at a car park.

On one oc­ca­sion, around 20 car­a­vans took up ‘ half’ of a car park be­fore the trav­ellers were asked to move on.
