At about 11 o’clock today several police vehicles arrived on the site. They contained armed officers and two police dogs. Officers were seen searching the garages at the bungalow and the surrounding area. A drone was deployed to view the surrounding area.
Several more vehicles, some unmarked, arrived and officers apparently entered the lodge occupied by the son of the site owner. It is not known if anyone was detained by police.
Vehicles gradually departed but two remained, together with four officers, until 1545 when they too left.
According to the Derby Telegraph website the police issued a statement to the effect that the raid was connected with an illegal drugs matter.
This is the third time that police have been to the site in force since the change in ownership. In the old days the site was just a quiet, rural caravan park where nothing much ever happened. We have to ask – are these the sort of neighbours we want ?
