Twenty-four caravans and motorhomes have pitched up at Goring Greensward in Marina Drive.

A resident said that the travellers 'caused havoc' in Sainsbury's this (Thursday, July 6) morning, blocking customers in with their trucks and were rude to staff when asked to move on.

A West Sussex County Council spokesperson said: “There are currently 24 caravans/motorhomes parked at this location.

"All have been served with a notice requiring them to vacate the land. Should they fail to do so, court proceedings will commence.

"We, together with Sussex Police, will continue to monitor the site.”
