"Tighten the law on illegal gypsy encampments," Rob tells Government

ROB has demanded the Government urgently tightens the law on illegal gypsy encampments.

His move came after travellers set up unauthorised encampments on six city sites - including two in his constituency – sparking complaints from residents and traders.

The MP said: “While I understand that members of the gypsy community often face great difficulties finding places to stay, the way they choose to overcome these problems must not be allowed to inconvenience or impose financial costs on the settled population.
