Over 3,000 Travellers descent in Cotswold Field for Festival

Grass Clippings - Travellers in FieldMore than 3,000 travellers have taken over a Cotswold field for an annual gypsy Christian festival with landowners claiming they were misled over the booking.

Aerial photographs show the huge scale of the event at Thame Showground in Oxfordshire with the number of attendees set to double over the coming days.

The convention has been organised by the evangelical Light and Life Gypsy Church, which has an estimated 20,000 followers across 33 churches in Britain.

But neighbourhood and police community support officers from Thames Valley Police have been patrolling the area of the showground to deal with any incidents.

And Thame and Oxfordshire County Agricultural Association, which hires out the field, claimed it had been misled after the group booked under a different name.

Cannot wait to see the pile of rubbish left behind by these Christian Travellers.
