STATEMENT: Travellers on site at Newcastle-under-Lyme College

12th July 2017

At approximately 5pm on Tuesday 11 July, a number of unauthorised Traveller vehicles entered the grounds of Newcastle-under-Lyme College via the student car park entrance on Ashfields New Road. 

The College has taken this situation very seriously and we are taking all of the necessary steps within our powers and within the law to have the Travellers evicted from the College grounds in the shortest possible time frame.  In the meantime we can confirm that additional safeguarding measures have been put in to place, including a heightened security presence on site, with a 24 hour patrol in operation.  This is an evolving situation and further updates will be published in due course.
