A group of people in dressing gowns in a dozen caravans are said to have pitched up at a Tesco car park in north west London.

The group, believed to be travellers, were reportedly blocking parking spaces around the supermarket with more than a dozen caravans.

The local council had been notified of the situation at the Wembley Tesco Extra supermarket, the Mail Online reports.

The group's caravans, mobiles homes and other vehicles blocked car park entry routes and straddled multiple parking spaces, according to reports.

Photos show at least 12 caravans dotted around the Tesco car park, which is less than a mile from the major Wembley Park stadium.

The Mail reports another Tesco supermarket was closed down when police were called over travellers last week.
