Police were on standby in Seaham this morning as hundreds of travellers who controversially set up camp began to leave.

Up to 1,000 caravans have been at Seaham Hall Farm, where a convention by Light and Life Gypsy Church has been taking place this week.

Some roads in the vicinity were closed to allow the caravans to leave more easily.
