TRAVELLERS have set up camp on a Kirklees car park.
The dozen families moved in with caravans and trucks on to the land in St Andrew’s Road earlier this week.
Now council officials have started legal moves to try and have them evicted off the site, which has been used for parking council vehicles from the adjacent Riverside complex, which houses environmental services.
The land was the site of the former Examiner press hall.
A Kirklees spokesman said: "We have applied for a Huddersfield County Court hearing to get the travellers evicted but it seems the earliest date is likely to be March 24.
"We have set the wheels in motion".
