The car park of a Preston leisure centre has seen a group of travellers arrive.Advertisement
Six caravans have parked up on the top car park at West View Leisure Centre in Deepdale.
It comes as the council-run leisure centres are poised to be handed over to the Greenwich Leisure Limited social enterprise.

“I was there early Saturday morning and saw five or six caravans parked up.”
