The university said it is liaising with the police and West Sussex County Council to take the 'necessary legal action to move them on' from its multi-million pound technology park in Upper Bognor Road.

A spokesman said: “We have temporarily closed the car park at our Tech Park on our Bognor Regis campus due to the presence of travellers.

"Our primary concern is for the welfare and safety of our students, staff, visitors, and close neighbours.”
