High Court bailiffs and police evict Mile End Road homeless squatters The 20-strong group was occupying two properties owned by Transport for London.
High Court enforcement officers and police arrived to evict a 20-strong squatting group from an address on just after 5.30am this morning.
The squatters who have been in the building since the COVID 19 Lockdown have resisted the order.
A notice pinned to the front door stated: “All persons in occupation of the property must vacate the land forthwith.”
The homeless occupiers understood the deadline to leave was after the 25th August but claimed the owners made a mistake in applying for a possession order instead of an interim possession order.
Despite a noise entrance by the bailiff using sledge hammers and battering rams the group peacefully left the premises this morning with about 18 people and two dog leaving.
