POLICE are monitoring the site of a demolished Leeds pub after travellers moved in today.
West Yorkshire Police were called shortly after 9am after travellers set up camp on private land on Holbeck Lane, where the Lord Nelson pub used to stand.
The disused pub was demolished last year after being gutted by fire.
A police spokesman said: “Advice has been provided to the complainant regarding the civil process required to evict travellers from areas of private land.
“Patrols in the area will monitor the site and respond appropriately to any incident requiring a police presence.”
