A GROUP of travellers set up on Rye’s Fair Salts on Friday night after the lock on a gate was broken.

Around eight or nine caravans occupied an area of the Salts close to a children’s playground. Police and an environmental health officer from Rother Council served notice on them on Saturday morning requiring them to move on . The travellers were expected to leave by Wednesday of this week.
