Council monitors Stonehaven traveller 'camp'

Aberdeenshire Council has said it is monitoring a group of travellers which set up an unauthorised camp in Stonehaven.

A group of about nine travellers arrived at Baird Park Road on Sunday night.

A group of travellers was evicted from the area last month.

A pledge to find more authorised sites for the travelling community was made to help ease tensions in the north east of Scotland earlier this month.

It came at a summit, held in Inverurie, aimed at improving relations.

It was agreed that both the settled and travelling communities would work together in a bid to foster mutual respect.

The meeting was organised by the Grampian Regional Equality Council (GREC).
