GRAYS residents have reacted with anger as travellers have reportedly set up in a busy car park.
The car park is situated next to the Bricklayers Arms off Bridge Road in Grays.
An unauthorised encampment set up at Grays Beach Park recently. They then moved on to Stanley Road car park.
Whereas those two car parks are used mainly by people visiting the area, this car park is mainly used by residents.
An unauthorised encampment could force them to park on roads with yellow lines.
If this is a "traveller situation" then the council use the Essex County Traveller Unit in order to go through the courts.
However, many people are annoyed that the council are not more pro-active in deploying preventative measures.
