Caravans parked in the Checkatrade Stadium are covering a very large area.

Broadfield Stadium in Crawley received some unexpected visitors this week as a large number of caravans took over their car park.

Although Crawley Town F.C. don’t have a match until Saturday (14 April), staff seem to struggle to move the travellers on to allow football fans to park; the caravans were taking up quite a large section of the car park.

Speaking with a club representative, they are hoped the matter would soon be resolved as the police had intervened and a section 61 was allegedly going to be used, forcing the travellers to leave.

More caravans were spotted in Russell’s Way in Crawley, which is just a short distance from the stadium.

The travellers have since moved on.
