TRAVELLERS in a fleet of caravans have moved into yet another Oxford park and ride in a seemingly endless migration around city car parks.

Drivers have shared their exasperation after dozens of caravans parked up at Pear Tree Park and Ride on the Northern Bypass yesterday.

One commuter used Twitter to attack Oxford City Council over the ongoing problem, telling the authority: "I use Pear Tree Park and Ride five days a week and now struggling to find a place to park due to 40+ carvans parked up there!! What are you doing about this?"

Jon Townsend responded to that message: "Shocking! I parked there this morning. And I use park very loosely! I pay up front and couldn't find a space to park for a while resulting in me being late to work. I thought these car parks that we pay for are supposed to have security to ensure this doesn't happen!"

Ron Biggelow added: "Have you started ticketing the illegally parked vehicles? If not why?"

The city council, which operates Pear Tree, said that car park staff and its own legal team had 'started the process of removal' and apologised for the inconvenience.

In a tweet it added: "Whilst we do not have onsite staff, enforcement officers visit the site throughout the day and CCTV is installed."

The car park invasion comes just days after authorities managed to kick travellers out of Water Eaton Park and Ride just north of Pear Tree.

Caravans had already been forced to move on from already been moved on from that site in December, as well as from Thornhill Park and Ride and Pear Tree in the same month.

Oxfordshire County Council has already called for more powers from the Government to deal with travellers pitching up on its land.
