Epsom and Ewell Borough Council has obtained an order from the court to remove the unauthorised encampment on Nonsuch Park.

The order gives the group 24 hours to leave the site, after which the council will seize vehicles.

An Epsom and Ewell Borough Council spokesperson said: “The order has now been served and we must wait 24 hours before removing the encampment.

“We will check the park tomorrow to see if the order is complied with or if we need to remove the vehicles and their occupants.”

The travellers moved to Nonsuch Park from Cheam Park, with several encampments seen across Surrey in the last few weeks.
