Legal proceedings are being taken to move a group of travellers from a bridge construction site in Devon.

There are currently about six caravans camped on the site near Exeter which is owned by Devon County Council.

Work has begun to construct a new £4m pedestrian and cycle bridge across the M5 motorway at Redhayes.

A council spokesman said the project had not been affected by the travellers, but they would be evicted if they did not leave.

The travellers arrived on the site last week.
