Police have confirmed that they are now looking to arrest squatters who took over a warehouse last week.

The owner of a warehouse in Markfield Road, Tottenham, was left in despair after a group of ravers broke into her property and claimed “squatters’ rights”.

The property holder, who wishes to remain unnamed, spent hours cleaning the building after a group locked themselves in and threw a party, before continuing to live there for a week.

She described having spent hours cleaning up human excrement and graffiti.

Police arrived at the warehouse in the early hours of Sunday morning after an intruder alarm was triggered, but were unable to make any arrests as squatting in commercial buildings is legal.

However, following the theft of the warehouse’s light bulbs, plug sockets, alarm system, CCTV cameras, along with business stock that was being stored there, the police are looking to arrest the group for burglary.

A police spokesman said a commercial burglary investigation has now been launched, but that no arrests have been made.
