As reported by Wv11.co.uk last night, the travellers who have occupied the Colman Avenue / Ellards Fields site in Wednesfield for the past 10 days have now vacated the area.

Wolverhampton City Council today confirmed on Twitter that the travellers have left the site and the clean up operation, which should see playground equipment put back in place, has begun in earnest.

The Express & Star are reporting that the travellers left a sick puppy tied to a tree, along with Mattresses, old tyres, gas canisters and clothes.

Tim Clark, spokesman for Wolverhampton City Council, said: “Our staff are now on site to carry out the clear up. We estimate this will take one to two days. I can confirm a puppy was left tied to a tree.

“They have also left a lot of rubbish on the site, including rubbish bags, industrial residue, tree prunings, branches, some excrement and faeces.”

The travellers left the site on the evening of Wednesday, 11th August shortly before Wolverhampton City Council were due in court to gain an eviction notice on Thursday, 12th August.
