A couple whose £30,000 dream caravan was stolen have been told that police have no powers to remove a gypsy family now living in it because it would ‘breach their human rights’.
Kathleen McLelland and her partner Michael Curry spent £20,000 of savings on a 26ft long Bailey Louisiana camper and a further £10,000 kitting it out before it was stolen by thieves from a Hampshire village in 2011.
The pair were delighted when police contacted them 18 months later to say that the caravan had been found with a traveller couple and their two children living in it less than ten miles away in Hook.
