Security fencing is being demanded for the perimeter of a proposed traveller's camp in Bridlington.

Steel security fencing must be put up around the Woldgate travellers' site if a £1.4 million upgrade is to go ahead, Carnaby Parish Council has said, the East Riding Mail reports.

The authority is concerned that the new site will not stop travellers using nearby playing fields during summer and that the scheme will devalue local land.

It wants "a steel security fence on three sides" if the proposal does go ahead, the newspaper reported.

Bridlington Town Council and the Civic Society have both given the go-ahead for the new site.

"I lived on that site. It's not nice, not a good place to live," Kathleen Smith told the newspaper.

"We just want somewhere decent to live."

Recently, the residents of a village in Lancashire said they wanted to keep the security fencing they had put up to stop anti-social behaviour.

People living in Inchfield, Skelmersdale, are applying for retrospective planning permission for the security measure after being told by the council it must be pulled down, the Champion recently reported.ADNFCR-3337-ID-800418179-ADNFCR
