A convoy of around 20 traveller caravans settled in a Beckenham park yesterday.

Police were called a number of times over the weekend by concerned residents, and attended the site at Churchfields Recreation Ground, in Churchfields Road, at around 9pm.

Officers are now working with Bromley Council and aim to serve a notice to leave today.

Patrols have also been increased in the area.
