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.
