Government aims to clamp down on squatters

Housing minister Grant Shapps is launching an online guide for homeowners explaining their rights and how to act if their property is invaded by squatters.

He joined BBC Breakfast along with a Katherine Hibbert, a former squatter, who now works for The Advisory Service for Squatters, a service which Mr Shapps suggested acted like an 'estate agency for squatters'.
