Stewart Newman

Take there vehicles off them

Linda Bonney Watson

Give them all fines for trespass and I bet there's loads of debris/rubbish already...

Jimmy Cording

Arrest them and crush there caravans and vehicles problem solved.

Sharon Hull

They know the law and how long they can stay. Laws need to be changed

Val Thompson

Bring in the bulldozers

Simon Michael Preston

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.

Peter Mckenna

But if they fetched those laws in everyone would be affected not just the illegals

Steve Helm

Make sure they take their rubbish with them.
