A group of travellers have moved onto one of Scarborough's park and ride sites, forcing its closure.

The Filey Road site was closed last night and there is no date for it to reopen,

A spokesman for North Yorkshire County Council said: "The A64 Seamer Road site will continue in operation, but the A165 Filey Road site will be out of operation after the last bus tonight until further notice, after travellers moved on to the site this afternoon.

"The county council apologises for the inconvenience the temporary closure may cause and is making every effort to reopen the site as soon as possible."
