Two Labour MPs, nicknamed "Mr and Mrs expenses," have left their "main" home empty for so long that squatters have moved in. The home has been empty for almost 12 months while the MPs have made taxpayers pay for a luxury flat 9 miles away.
The squatters were made aware of the empty property by a local resident and have been welcomed with food, clothes and bedding from neighbours. The squatters held a barbecue for their new neighbours in return for the welcome.
A banner has been raised on the front of the house reading" "Reclaiming Your Taxes." Neighbours have voiced unanimous support for the squatters, saying they'd prefer that the MPs didn't come back. The MPs still claim it is their main home.
