Earlier today (Monday), Bedford Borough Council, supported by Bedfordshire Police, began a clean-up of the Kempston Hardwick Caravan site.

A spokesperson for the police said, “As a responsible landlord, the council carried out inspections of all the properties and site, and began a thorough clean-up.

“Bedfordshire Police supported this work to ensure there was no breach of the peace.

“Further action is being taken, including applying for a Court Order to stop anyone going onto the site who is not a resident, alongside the appropriate security measures.”
