A group of travellers using almost 40 caravans has moved on to a conservation area in Birmingham.

Residents living by Old Yardley Park, in Yardley, said they can no longer use the park because of the travellers, who parked there on Thursday.

Birmingham City Council said it has issued a notice ordering them to move or face legal action.

A council spokesman said officers served the seven-day notice on 6 August.
