RESIDENTS are angry after a traveller camp was set up on Carlisle park next to a housing estate.

About nine campers and caravans, with a large number of associated cars and vans have set up on the park at Low Moor Avenue, off Durdar Road, Blackwell.

It is believed they came to the park at about 4.30pm to 5pm yesterday.

The News & Star attended this morning when four police officers were present and speaking to the travellers.

One resident, who does not want to be named said: "They arrived yesterday, there was a lot of them and they were driving around the park, they were very noisy - the police came and there was a lot of them as well."

Another said: "They are a nightmare."

It is unclear if they are the same group of travellers that were in the nearby South Car Park of nearby Carlisle Racecourse, also on Durdar Road, Wednesday night.

A nearby resident said: "There were about 10 caravans that came for one night."
