Working group to be set up on rogue traveller camps

A working group is to be set up to look at how the authorities deal with unauthorised traveller camps and to seek official sites.

Dozens of people attended a meeting in Stonehaven over the issue on Tuesday night.

Aberdeenshire Council and Grampian Police staff joined more than 70 people for the talks, in the wake of several rogue settlements.

They included one at the town's open air swimming pool.
