A group of travellers have set up a camp on Southwick Green.

A spokesman for Sussex Police confirmed 10 to 15 vehicles, with their occupants, arrived on the green on Thursday (August 15).

The spokesman said police were working with Adur and Worthing councils, which own Southwick Green, to review the situation.

In a tweet this afternoon, Adur and Worthing councils said the encampment had been set a 5pm deadline to move from the area, or face eviction by police officers.
