Home Secretary Priti Patel will strengthen police powers and create a criminal offence to target people who live in vehicles on land without permission and who cause "distress" to communities. She said: "This new offence will enable the police to fine or arrest those residing on private or public land in vehicles without permission to stop significant disruption, distress or harm being caused to the law-abiding majority. "I am delivering on my commitment to give the police the powers they need to tackle these encampments swiftly and effectively.”
