A spokesman for Wigan Council said that as the site was private land, it had contacted the landowners, but it was up to them to take action if they wanted to.

Only last week caravans had been spotted off Coop Street in Whelley, but a spokesman for the council added that these were not the same group.

Landowners can obtain a court order for a removal notice, giving 48 hours to vacate the site.

Wigan and Leigh Housing has a special site for gypsies and travellers at Bickershaw. The community can call 01942 705040 or email enquiries@walh.co.uk
