Significant amount of refuse on an undeveloped plot of land

We recently had "travellers" entering a plot of land next to my dwelling with caravans. I've just returned from a trip overseas and noticed a significant amount of refuse next to these caravans. The site is gated so it cannot be seen from the ground level.

  • The “ travellers “ have entered into the plot illegally and by force as it was a locked plot , they are driving around collecting rubbish and dumping it on the plot !

  • More trash is being taken to the plot. In the picture you can see the van which is being used for it.

  • The location of the rubbish on the site has spread to multiple locations. This is likely to encourage vermin, and increase litter in surrounding areas and represents a severe fire risk.

    There are children living on the site amongst this trash. It is not a sanitary environment. It is not a safe environment. There are also tents on site, which suggest people sleeping outdoors amongst the trash.
