Travellers are still at their unauthorised camp in Culloden.

"Our staff are liaising with the people involved and progress the ‘Policy on supporting cooperation and managing unauthorised camps’ which sets out the multi-agency responsibilities and arrangements for responding to roadside encampments.

"A copy of the policy can be viewed on our website.”
