Poplar Squatters Evicted For Christmas

Homeless shelters might be even more packed than usual this Christmas as around 300 squatters are due to be evicted from a block of flats that have stood empty for 3 years in Poplar today. Tower Hamlets say that the squatters, which include families, have been encouraged to "engage with the council's Homeless and Housing Advice Service to discuss their housing options" but carrying out the eviction, 2 weeks before Christmas seems Grinch plus Scroodge in the anti-festive stakes.
