Not cricket

Travellers often get a bad press, and as anyone who's been to Stamford this holiday weekend can see, sometimes they deserve it.

Stamford Cricket Club's ground (on the road in from The Deepings) is marked out for football at this time of the year. But it has literally been invaded with dozens of double-axle luxury caravans and trucks.

I can't see anyone being able to play any sport there this weekend - and when the travellers have finally been moved on, they'll no doubt be a clean-up.

I'd put money on us council taxpayers having to pick up the bill for that.

I respect traveller's right to their life-style, but only when they have respect for mine.
