TRAVELLERS are currently occupying the site of the former market at Firepool in Taunton.

Several caravans were spotted arriving at the site near Priory Bridge Road yesterday (February 26).

A spokesman for Taunton Deane Council said: "The council is aware of the travellers on our Firepool site.

"We have served notice to quit on the travellers and will pursue the necessary steps to clear the site as soon as possible."
