THE Gateway Park and Ride site on the edge of Taunton is closed this morning (Tuesday).

The site was put out of operation yesterday afternoon after a group of travellers attempted to access it.

Police prevented the travellers from getting onto the site, but it was closed as a preventative measure.

The operator has announced today that the park and ride remains closed this morning.

The county and district councils are working to get it up and running again.

In the meantime buses will run to and from Blackbrook bus gate.
