Keith Arthur blasts traveller site plans

Outspoken Angling Times columnist Keith Arthur has hit out at news that a permanent travellers’ camp has been proposed on a popular area of the Hampshire Avon.

In his latest article for AT, Keith criticises Wiltshire Borough Council for attempting to place eight permanent mobile homes at Britford – a stretch run by London Anglers Association.

“The thought of any council creating a permanent site for people that call themselves travellers is bonkers,” said Keith. “The very phrase ‘permanent travellers’ site’ is an oxymoron.”
