A spokesman for Octavian Security, which is in charge of security at the site for landowner Pro Logis, said the camp, on Glendon Road near Rushton, had been set up on Friday evening.

He added: “They are being served with an eviction notice today and they will have 24 hours to move off the site.”

The spokesman also said the Travellers had not caused any problems since they had been on the land, which is part of the Kettering Business Park.
