Here's what our readers had to say:
Take there vehicles off them
Linda Bonney Watson
Give them all fines for trespass and I bet there's loads of debris/rubbish already...
Arrest them and crush there caravans and vehicles problem solved.
They know the law and how long they can stay. Laws need to be changed
Bring in the bulldozers

They cause problems where ever they go.The pub and car park though it is empty still belongs to somebody. We need stricter laws which prevents them from parking up anywhere ideally.
But if they fetched those laws in everyone would be affected not just the illegals
Make sure they take their rubbish with them.
