I read that a certain family of 'gypsies ' (as reported in MailOnline) has been buying up land for a pittance, reportedly £9k and have built an ugly 10ft high breeze block wall at the entrance after parking numerous caravans and 4×4s on the area which is the size of a tennis court.
After making an unholy mess of the local beauty spot with rubbish, burning fires and urinating and defecating in the gardens of residents, they are now demanding £600k yes...six hundred thousand pounds from residents if they want them to move.
This is the family who were recently kicked out of NZ for similar behaviour.
The same travelling family group are threatening to bring down house prices in another scenario 8 miles away where they have threatened residents who are now crowd-funding to raise the 'demanded' £100k to buy back the 1/4 acre piece of land for which the travellers paid an elderly couple £12k.
They've already driven heavy plant hire through the hedge flattening everything in it's path.
I can't write what I really think of this extortion and the inability of police to arrest them for their behaviour, however, it stinks, which is not to put too fine a point on it.
Another minority 'untouchable' group.
A curse and blight on the face of the earth...IMV.
