TRAVELLERS left a sports centre car park last night after reportedly causing disruption throughout yesterday.

The group of caravans moved on from Bicester Leisure Centre car park, off Queens Avenue, at 8pm yesterday evening.

Earlier in the day, the leisure centre revealed in a Facebook post that it had hired door security due to 'repeated incidents' on site.

It also closed early at 10pm 'to ensure the safety of members and staff', but is open as normal today.

The leisure centre posted on Facebook this morning: "We [would] like to thank both Cherwell District Council and Thames Valley Police for their support and actions which ensured a swift and peaceful resolution."

The encampment is thought to have parked up at the back of the leisure centre car park, opposite Brookside Primary School and Jack and Jill Pre School.

Several parents reported the disruption it caused yesterday morning during drop-off times for the nearby schools.
