Lincolnshire Police officers attended the scene and were made aware that the group had trespassed on the business’ car park.

The firm say they are in conversations with the group and have advised them to vacate by midday on Thursday, November 12.

David Fox, Spaldings Ltd Chief Executive said: “We are continuing to trade as usual and are in speaking with the owners of the caravans with the views to move them on by lunch time today.

“The arrival of three caravans and around 15 people disrupted business between lunchtime yesterday and this morning.

“We have also had to bring in extra security, which does come at a cost to the business.

“We are hoping to convince them to leave without getting into legal proceedings.”

Lincolnshire Police are aware and dealing with the situation under incident number 202.
