Witnesses told Andover and Villages, “The group of travellers caused a massive traffic jam on the estate, they were everywhere and then the police started to turn up, it was chaos!”

Hampshire Constabulary said, “We are aware of an unauthorised encampment and officers have visited the site. We are liaising with the landowner.”

Police and Test Valley Borough Council are reported to be on the scene.

An eye-witness exclusively told Andover and Villages, “One member of the group broke into the unit by using bolt cutters and allowed other members of the group onto the site outside the previous ducal unit.

“They then also bolted themselves inside so no police or the council could enter.”
