RESIDENTS were left raging after travellers set up camp in a field yards away from their homes.

At least 15 caravans rolled out of the large council-owned field this weekend – leaving the area covered in rubbish.



Bulging binbags and shards of broken metal lay dumped on the Old Bank recreation ground, in Mirfield, West Yorkshire.

Empty McDonalds wrappers, used nappies and a discarded tyre were also seen by raging residents.

And portaloos were pushed over, leaving used loo roll spilling out over the grass.

Brits whose homes backed onto the caravans have been left to languish next to the filthy field.

"I have seen dirty nappies and food waste, which will attract rats.

"I’m glad to see the back of them.

"Ironically, I am picking up my dog poo to avoid a £1,000 fine, but the travellers are facing no punishment."
