These images capture the scene when travellers forced their way into a derelict site in Eaton Socon.

When the CCTV clip begins just two vehicles and a man are in view. Soon, more travellers arrive in caravans and vans before breaking into the property on Little End Road, on September 14 this year. They left after one night.

The former factory site, which has been earmarked for a 70-bed care home and 43 homes by property development company Frontier Estates, was also broken into and occupied by travellers for 15 days in April. After this, extra security measures were installed. This included the CCTV cameras from Primewatch Security which recorded the footage.
