How migrants make such great headlines
A GANG of Lithuanian squatters is behind a terrifying scam in which peopleâ€™s homes are seized and locks changed while they are out, it has emerged. The illegal tenants have been holed up in one property for at least five months and the authorities are powerless to evict them without a court order. In another case, an elderly man took his dogs for a walk and returned home to find the Lithuanian gang had moved in and were throwing all his possessions out of the window and into his front garden. Tenants have been told the police are powerless to act as the occupation of their homes is a civil matter.
