Squatters have moved into a London super-mansion in a road dubbed “Billionaires’ Row”, a few doors from a house owned by the steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal.
The squatted-in house is in The Bishops Avenue, in North London, a favoured address among international businessmen and heads of state, where it is not uncommon for mansions to have heated driveways, security guards and their own beauty parlours. However, this property, like many others in some of London’s most prestigious streets, was left empty and run-down years ago, according to its new occupants. High-profile neighbours include the Saudi royal family and the Brunei royal family.
The squatters have been told that the property is worth £30m.
