A small group of travellers that set up camp at a landmark pub has been handed a deadline to leave.
As of Tuesday (July 26) two caravans and one other vehicle were parked at the Iron Duke in Great Yarmouth.
It is understood they arrived over the weekend, removing industrial fencing to enter the site.
Trust chairman Bernard Williamson said the trust had been working with the authorities including the police, and that the group had been told to leave by Friday.
He said inside the pub all utilities including water and electricity had been turned off.
Travellers were also reported on private land in Fenner Road near the Nelson Monument in Great Yarmouth, but have now moved on.
In a statement, Great Yarmouth Borough Council said: “Council officers have visited the area around the Iron Duke pub in response to reports of unauthorised caravan parking.
