Has anyone else noticed 16 - 18 Marshalsea Road being over run with squatters. Urinating outside the building, kicking parked cars whilst intoxicated and being a general nusiance.
I have no gripe with empty buildings being used by squatters etc but their behaviour in this case is not acceptable.

Yes. I noticed on Sunday afternoon. Whether they're squatters or not has little bearing, as you say.

...if you press it, they will come.

I wonder if SE London is particularly attractive to squatters of if squats are on the rise (as they appear to be) all over London?

It's a lot cheaper than private renting in the area.

I think it has to do with developers having ambitious plans for sites they acquire then the plans don't get approved
Ergo - properties empty so why not move in!!

I can understand being homeless and having nowhere to go and seeing seemingly empty buildings, but why trash them? It seems to me the majority of squatters are drug using clods...I know there are squatters who keep their heads down and don't upset their neighbours, unfortunately the way they leave some properties smashing things and graffiti internally and externally leave a lot to be desired.
We were homeless as youngsters after the war and even invading the bombed out homes we would never have treated them like that.
