BRENT FRUSTRATED ON SQUAT CLOSURE

The inhabitants of Europe's biggest squat claimed a victory last week after Brent LBC was frustrated in its high court bid to have them evicted.

Bulldozers were poised to begin demolition of Rutlands Park Mansions - in Willesden Green, north London - if the court allowed the council to evict 168 squatters. But the case has now been adjourned.

Gavin Fothergill, a spokesperson for the Save Rutlands Park Mansions campaign, said: 'There are people willing to pay money to save this building - which will house more than twice the number of people than if it is demolished, and a replica put in its place.

'We will continue to push for a judicial review of our case'.

Brent's legal representative declined to comment on the outcome of the case.
