More than 50 travellers have set up camp on the outskirts of Truro.

Police confirmed there are now between 20-30 vans and cars on a public highway at the far end of Newham.

Cornwall Council said there was an "unauthorised encampment" at the site.

Both Cornwall Council and the police will now monitor the situation before any action is taken.

    Both Cornwall Council and the police will now monitor the situation before any action is taken. Why? Either it is illegal to park on a public highway or it is not. If it is why debate the matter get down there and tell them to travel only not so politely. Why do these people get preferential treatment? If I nparked illegally on a highway my feet wouldn't touch until I was in a cell.
