SusanWatch: Daily Express – February 11, 2014

susan_hall_leaderThe Daily Express today (February 11, 2014, page 7) carries a story from yesterday where the Council swooped in and cleared out some public toilets that had been taken over by ‘Romanian’ squatters in Whitchurch Lane. The same story also makes the Daily Mail (MailOnline version here) and even ripples out the Elm Park Conservatives Facebook page (Elm Park, to save you Googling it, is in Havering, so think of Romford, Rainham, Upminster sort of direction).

The toilet block is currently about to go for auction, where it is expected to reach £300,000. Those interested in buying can register their interest here.

    I expect the people living there have been put at the top of the housing register. They will be put above law abiding local people.

    Edward and J P I if what you say is true surely these people would not have been living in a disused toilet because Harrow Council would have gifted them a spacious detached house in leafy Stanmore…
