A family of travellers illegally parked in Matlock Bath will not be evicted today, as planned, owing to the snow.

Derbyshire Dales District Council had served an eviction notice on the family to vacate the Coach Park at Matlock Bath Station earlier this week.

But a district council spokesperson said “it would not be appropriate” to force the family – who are soon to be offered a temporary traveller site at Old Station Close, Rowsley – to vacate the area in such bad weather conditions.

The family will now have until Tuesday to leave the site.
