Travellers who have moved on to a five-a-side centre’s car park have said they will move on Friday, so their children can complete the week at school.

Goals Bradford centre manager Robin Richardson said two camper vans, a caravan and three vehicles arrived last Thursday and travellers had told staff they would move on Saturday.

At the weekend they said they would be staying until yesterday and now they say they will stay until Friday.

Mr Richardson said customers had been concerned about the safety of their vehicles and organisers of an event almost pulled out.

He said the children had been “cheeky” but added that there had been no major issues and no thefts reported.

“We do want them gone as soon as possible though, they’ve not been causing massive issues, but we do want them gone and it has affected the perception of our business.”
