Travellers have left a site in Lichfield after rising tensions with local residents.
The group had set up camps on land at Netherstowe over the weekend.
But a heavy police presence was brought in this evening (5th July) as the travellers left the site.
One eyewitness told Lichfield Live:
“It was pretty tense as they were leaving with a lot of local people turning out to make sure they were going.”
