Run off as travellers occupy playing field
A weekly running event for children aged from four to 14 has been cancelled in Leeds after travellers moved onto the site where it is held.
Bodington Junior Parkrun will not go ahead today after the group of travellers entered the University of Leeds’s Bodington Playing Fields.
A spokesperson for the university said it had temporarily closed some facilities and cancelled some bookings. In a typical weekend 200 to 300 people use the site.
