A group of travellers have been linked to a three-day crime spree in a Lincolnshire town.
Residents and local councillors are furious with the mess left on Mill Road in Market Deeping.
It has been described as a “horrible state,” where a stolen Land Rover was left next to ruined crops, “human waste” and “myriad rubbish.”
Lincolnshire Police has been working with the Cambridgeshire force to increase patrols in the area.
A police spokesperson said: “One person has already been arrested in connection with this and several items, believed to have been stolen, have been seized.”
Peter Hiller, a local councillor, visited the site on Monday, July 8, and said: “I have been on site with police this morning at the now-vacated travellers’ pitch.
“One of our beautiful rural ward’s tracts of countryside has been befouled yet again by these people.
“That said, a lovely distraction this morning was a long chat with Phoebe, who was riding past on her handsome horse Woody.
“A snapshot I think of what it is we love about where we live and why we will do all we can to protect it.”
