Police, trading standards officers and court officials visited a travellers' site in Leicestershire today. The Leicester Magistrates' Court officers had warrants for non-payment of fines and were able to collect several unpaid amounts at the Greenacres travellers' site in Market Harborough. The Leicestershire County Council trading standards officers were making inquiries into allegations of unfair trading practices. Keith Regan, trading standards' operations manager for the council, said: "We were making inquiries into alleged unfair trading practices in respect of landscaping and gardening work and the pressure-washing of drives. "These alleged practices include poor quality work and charging higher prices than those agreed. It was part of a multi-agency visit to the site. "We were able to gather intelligence information to assist our inquiries but no direct action was taken as a result of the visit." A police spokeswoman said no arrest had been made during the 8am visit.
