When ordered off the land and taken to Evesham magistrates court by Wychavon DC, the travellers claimed that there were no alternative sites available to them.
However, in June this year that decision was over-turned by the high court and the case remitted back to the magistrates with an order that they be convicted.
Now that decision has been upheld by the house of lords. Lords Nicholls, Hoffman and Hobhouse have refused the travellers leave to appeal against it.
