Caravans and other vehicles have been parked on the Lancaster City Council owned car park behind The Grand Theatre in St Leonard’s Gate since Thursday, October 24.

A council spokesman said: “They arrived on Thursday evening and were served notice to quit on Friday, giving them until Saturday morning to leave.

“They did not comply with the notice and as a result our legal team will be seeking a court order today to regain possession of the land.
