They was parked on the road(Tendring) last night at 2200 so if they are on the old compound site how did the fence and barrier get taken down to allow access, this is street view from last year, If that is where they have camped. https://www.instantstreetview.com/@51.760332,0.102117,173.81h,5p,1z,XwqELDErytpf9MbnKZ-grw

If it is illegal, as it appears to be, then IT IS ILLEGAL and the Council are right to act on residents behalf - and to act quickly. [Harlow is 'famous' for poor Grandma! - sorry, poor grammar!]

Grammar police, might I suggest you get a proper understanding and comprehension of the English language before you begin correcting others?
