TRAVELLERS have pitched up on playing fields in Wrexham. 

The encampment was set up on the Waens fields in Bradley on Monday evening. 

The Leader:

Local county councillor, Tina Mannering, posted on her Facebook page on Monday night saying: "I am dealing with the illegall encampment just broken on to the Waens Fields.

"Officers are arranging the legal paperwork that needs serving on the camp. But due to time of day we will probably need to wait for the court to open in the morning."
