Highland Council’s has won its latest legal bid to evict travellers illegally camped on its land in Inverness.
The council secured an eviction notice at a hearing at Inverness Sheriff Court today to move the group on from their camp at a mini-golf course and a nearby car park between Bught Park and the Ness Islands.
More than a dozen caravans parked at the site a week ago after twice facing court action forcing them to move from other locations in the city.
Last week, DIY firm B&Q won a court order to evict the camp from its disused store on Telford Road.
The travellers then pitched up at a council-owned football pitch in St Valery Avenue before being evicted last Friday by sheriff officers after the local authority secured an eviction notice.
