TRAVELLERS have set up camp in yet another Oxfordshire car park and been ordered to get out.

About 20 caravans moved onto Redbridge Park and Ride yesterday.

The Park and Ride is operated by Oxford City Council and its staff visited the site yesterday to ‘ask [travellers] to leave’.

The car park, which has 1,412 spaces, remained open to all visitors despite the disruption.

It is the latest in a spate of incidents at Park and Rides across the county.

At the end of last month, travellers took over a commercial and public car park at Rye Farm in Abingdon.

They arrived there just hours after travellers were kicked off Bicester Park and Ride. About half the space there had been taken up.

After that was vacated, bin bags, pots and gas bottles were left cluttering it.

Another group which parked in Bicester was threatened with legal action after taking over the Pear Tree Park and Ride in Oxford. That is also operated by Oxford City Council and has about 1,035 spaces.

Oxfordshire County Council, which has also seen its own Park and Rides affected, said it is already working to put stronger defences in place to prevent unlawful encroachment.

Those measures could include more barriers, earth mounds and stronger padlocks.

It had been disrupted after about 20 caravans were parked at Water Eaton Park and Ride late last year.
