Their accents differ according to the different areas they are from I think. I used to confuse some travelling accents with Irish accents.

Yes, but what makes it a 'travellers' accent, as opposed to someone who has just come from Ireland or wherever.

I believe there may be some errors in this article:

I suspect that nobody received a call FROM police - I don't imagine the local officers are so keen to investigate crime that they report it themselves at 3:46am.

Secondly, I wonder if the 'police' described the man as having a traveler accent or if in fact this was the description offered by the person reporting the matter?
