Travellers have set up camp in the Tesco Extra Yeading car park and there has been a report of a much larger group being moved on from the nearby B&Q car park at the Willow Tree Retail Park.

A local resident contacted getwestlondon to say a number of caravans were spotted parking up in the car parks, both off Glencoe Road, on Saturday (September 15) afternoon.

She estimated that around 12 caravans had moved into B&Q car park, and around six were in the Tesco car park in the area of Hillingdon.

The travellers on the B&Q car park are understood to have left after being moved on by the management company of the retail park on Saturday evening.

The duty manage at Tesco confirmed three caravans remained parked in that car park shortly after 10am on Sunday (September 16).

She confirmed the caravans arrived on Saturday afternoon and added further questions will be aked to find out what is happening in regards of getting the travellers to move on from the site.

Where did the incident take place?

Residents not going to Tesco

A resident told us: “Many residents have now refused to give Tesco their custom due to their lack of support to the community concerning the ongoing, unaddressed anti-social-behaviour issues.

Tesco cannot comment

A spokesman for the Tesco Extra in Yeading has said he is not able to comment on the situation.

Residents have asked for security gates

A resident who got in touch with us said: “Residents and other small business owners who share the car park have repeatedly asked for height barriers and security gates to be installed to prevent travellers from bringing in caravans and to stop the illegal car meets, but Tesco have refused.”

Where are the travellers?
