A NUMBER of travellers have pitched up at a sport ground in Taunton.

This is the view of Taunton Rugby Club's Hyde Park HQ this morning (Monday) following yesterday's 'invasion'.

Club chairman John Wrelton has posted on social media saying: "First morning since @tauntonrfc was invaded by travellers.

"Hundreds of volunteer hours by our groundsman ruined as they drive around the pitches."

He has appealed for help from the South West and Somerset Rugby Football Unions.

He added: "What can we do, anyone in the rugby community give me a steer on how to deal with them?"
