From the Welwyn Hatfield Times

A LARGE police operation is underway in Potters Bar following reports of a dispute on a Travellers’ site.

Eyewitnesses on the scene say at least eight police cars, two riot vans and a helicopter have been dispatched to Barnet Road.

Roads around the site, close to the M25, have been closed.

The force has said it is reacting to reports of a row this morning.

A spokeswoman said: “Police were called at 11.46am this morning (March 18) to reports of a dispute between two parties at a traveller’s site in Barnet Road, Potters Bar.

“Officers are currently on scene dealing to mediate with those involved and prevent any further disruption.
