An "unauthorised" 30-vehicle traveller encampment has been set up in a north Norfolk car park.

The 20 vehicles and 10 caravans moved into the site last night at around 10pm.

The group arrived in the Runton Road car park in Cromer before the barriers could be closed - previously travelling to Sheringham.

A spokesman for North Norfolk Police said: "Our officers visited the encampment last night and we have resources on scene.

"We’re working with the landowners, North Norfolk District Council, who will look to serve notice on the unauthorised encampment.

"At this time we haven't had any reports of crime or disorder, and we'll have additional resources in the area throughout the day."
