Human waste and rubbish was left on land which has been occupied by travellers in Abingdon.

Owners of a number of white caravans set up camp at the green field off of Mill Road, with more vehicles reported to be arriving each day.

They are also using quad bikes in the area.

Concerned neighbours raised fears about hygiene saying: "Human waste has been left everywhere and fly-tipping is a regular occurrence."

A nearby resident, who asked for his name not to be published, said that he already contacted Oxfordshire County Council about the ‘disgusting’ mess but he was told that the land is private and it was up to the landowner to evict the group.
