Soon after buying the plot, which they named Pleasure View, more than 20 members of the family had moved their caravans, 4x4s and building machinery on to the site, often blocking the narrow lanes.

Meanwhile, eight miles away, the villagers of Astley – which is listed in the Domesday Book and was once the home of Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin – found themselves at the centre of a similar battle.

The Dorans bought a quarter- acre plot in Astley Burf for just £12,000 from an elderly couple. Five weeks ago Lawrence Doran told residents he intended to build a five-bed house on it, even though locals believe it is highly unlikely the local authority, Malvern Hills District Council, would give planning permission.

Last night, Patrick Doran said: 'We bought these plots in good faith. I just want to build a home for my family. What's wrong with that? Everything has been done legally, fair and square. We're being discriminated against because we're from the travelling community. People treat us like animals.'
