A school has been thrown into chaos after a large group of travellers moved on to its grounds.

Bottisham Village College has been forced to close today due to the traveller invasion.

Acting principal Jonathan Russell told parents: “We are working closely with the local police to resolve the situation as swiftly as possible. Given these circumstances, we have no choice but to close the college.”

Some pupils were due back from residential trips today and parents were told it was likely they would have to pick them up from an alternative location and that there would be no school buses to bring them home.
