PUBLISHED: 09:40 24 September 2013 | UPDATED: 09:40 24 September 2013

A convoy of around 20 traveller caravans settled in a Beckenham park since Sunday have now left.

Police and Bromley Council visited the site in Churchfields Recreation Ground, in Churchfields Road, yesterday to issue a notice to leave - but found the group of vehicles had already gone.

All parks in the borough have been checked, though there has been no sign of the caravan cluster.

Officers were first alerted to the make-shift campsite on Sunday by a number of concerned residents.

Police patrols were increased in the area, but will now return to normal.
