Hackney Council will today apply for permission to move the group on after failed efforts to reason with them.

A Hackney Council spokesman said: “The council is aware that a group of travellers have moved onto Stoke Newington Common and we are working to resolve the situation.

“There is a formal process involved, but we have been working through it as quickly as possible. We are now seeking a court order which will require them to leave.”
