DOZENS of caravans have turned up at a car park in Taunton.

Travellers were seen parking up in the car park on Priory Bridge Road, behind the new Viridor building, yesterday (January 23).

A spokesman at Taunton Deane Council said: "We have spoken to the travellers to find out why they're here.

"We are following the proper legal processes to regain possession and we understand concerns residents might have about them being in the area."
