An injunction banning travellers from setting up unauthorised camps in Harlow has been extended for three years. It protects more than 320 sites across the town and will now run until June 2020.

The current injunction was due to expire at midnight on Friday but has been extended by the High Court in London. It follows a successful application by Harlow Council and Essex County Council.

Those who breach the injunction face a fine or even prison.
