Travellers are still at a second makeshift Traveller encampment in Inverness today.

The first, which was at Torvean Park, now has no Travellers as all the caravans have now left.

They arrived at the second camp by yesterday morning – it is on open space behind Bun-sgoil Ghàidhlig Inbhir Nis, the Gaelic School, near Sir Walter Scott Drive.

One witness said there were five caravans parked there and a Highland Council spokesman said: “The Highland Council is continuing to liaise with the gypsy traveller group and progressing 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 at the council website.
