EIGHTEEN New Age travellers have been arrested while on their way to a suspected summer festival. This weekend is the anniversary of a festival last year when 8,000 travellers and ravers caused chaos when they went onto private farmland at Kerry, near Newtown, mid-Wales. A spokesman for Dyfed-Powys police said the travellers arrested overnight had been held for a variety of offences, including possession of drugs. The police are operating a system of road check-points to monitor the travellers' movements.
