LIVERPOOL, England— Commuters at a Liverpool-area train station missed trains and endured delays after a community of travelers parked as many as 12 camper trailers in the station’s parking lot.

Echo News station reported that local residents trying to find parking at the Lea Greens station in St. Helens, England, said the lot was three-quarters filled by the campers. Some believed that the travelers had cut locks on the station’s gates in order to access the space.

The group is believed to have appeared around 9 p.m. Tuesday night. Residents voiced their frustration to the local governmental council and Northern Rail, the company that operates the trains.

A railroad representative told local media that the company was working with local police to remove the travelers and their trailers as quickly as possible.
