During the first week in July 2010 residents of Markfield Road and Otterston Grove were faced with the sight of hordes of "travellers" caravans, vans and lorries occupying the last runway of the old Donibristle Air Station.
Once they had departed local businesses arranged to strategically place boulders around the perimeter of the site to prevent any recurrence. Unfortunately and contrary to reports in Dunfermline Press, history repeated itself Tuesday 10 July 2012 when approx 11 caravans assorted vans and "mini" diggers encamped on the same site because contractors demolishing lorry park Fulmar Way East had omitted to replace boulders at COP Mon 9 July.
After negotiations "Travellers" left Thurs 12 July. Messrs Ingenico took it upon themselves to arrange clearance of residual mess left behind.
