The Ripley Event has had to be cancelled due to a traveller encampment, organisers say.

A large police presence was seen along the High Street on Friday afternoon. 

In a statement, Chair of the Ripley Event Committee Michael Ramcharan said:

"Just to inform you that we have had to cancel the Ripley Event due to take place tomorrow due to Travellers encroaching on the area."

Surrey Police told Eagle Radio:

‘We were called to Ripley High Street at around 3:30pm following reports of an unauthorised encampment.

"Police have issued the group with a Section 61 this afternoon, directing the group to leave the site. We will continue to monitor the situation."
