Large scale event, police presence and road closure at Hall Lane. 

The day a number of "Travellers" are being given their marching orders by the council as the site is being closed.

School kids told of no access down the road. 

The story of the closure has even made it to the BBC.

No doubt someone will be wringing their hands and shouting about human rights.

They're barely human, so have no rights

We (Hicks) had a service engineers transit van full of tools nicked in the 90,s.

I drove on our car park one day and the body shell of it was stuck in a corner. Returned there by the police after it was found on the banks of the Croal at the side of the Gypsy site. (The only access through the site)
No one ever charged.

Yep.

Plant from wife's place up in Lancashire found there.

Returned (not sure about damage levels) but no charges. 

Just feral.

You don't hear much about it these days, is it still there, is anybody living on it these days?

I bet we are still paying rental

Does Grayling own it, perchance?

If only folk like you and Lineker would offer a room.

Compassion, diversity, inclusion. Get on with it. You know it makes sense.

Nah, just leave them on the streets, then same folk can moan that they're not being given somewhere to live.

Maybe, once the gypsies have gone, they will house some of them there.

Trouble is they will just pitch up somewhere else and cause Trouble there.

They'd make life easier for themselves if they just behaved ffs.

It's not in their nature 

This is a cycle that will repeat itself forever

Lineker does host asylum seekers.

Micah and Shearer don't count.

Once a few years back for a matter of days. Heard down at the local wine bar saying "Fuck that for a game of soldiers. Let some other cunt have 'em".

Could start by applying the law of the land to them as well, instead of pandering to their "protected characteristics"

Wouldn't be an issue whatsoever if they were honest, law abiding, respectful and generally contributed to society in a positive manner.

In some ways, not having a permanent base could be appealing, but they simply arrive, increase the crime rate etc then leave a scene of devastation once they fuck off.

the police are too shit scared to deal with them

vigilantism is the only answer here

Snatch style

pretty sure they won't go to the police for help

so just go in heavy and leave nothing behind

Few years ago my mate ran logistics and shit at Amazon.

Vans would get nicked mid delivery.

Police would track it to a travellers site and it would simply be parked up outside with the keys in.

Empty obviously.

Old bill had no interest in entering the site or getting the goods back.

they broke onto the land on a little in industrial estate owned by my other half's boss that houses a storage firm, factory, mechanics, few other units

they had CCTV

not HD, but you could quite clearly see a bloke about 6' 5" in a stripey top cutting through the locks with saw blade

when the police turned up, he was stood there having a cig leaning on the fence

they watched the video and said it was too grainy to make a positive ID

so fucked off and basically said deal with it yourself

they approached them to see what they wanted and before a word was said they whipped out some laminated sheet of "the law" and said we know our rights, said someone was in stepping hill hospital so they were staying until they were better

they left the next day when the owners of businesses on the land clubbed together and gave them 2k cash

If they stole my Mrs orders this week they'd have got their hands on a ton of tupperware, some spray to get stickers off PVC doors and fridge containers.

Not exactly the great train robbery.
