Squatting rights and wrongs in southern England


As the Ministry of Justice considers a change in the law to make squatting illegal in residential premises, Inside Out follows Joy McCabe as she tries to evict squatters from her mother's house in Langley, Berkshire.

Joy returned from holiday to find a group of Lithuanians in her property, the locks were changed and the police could do nothing.

We follow Joy as she fights to reclaim her property.

Inside Out can be seen on BBC One at 19:30 GMT on Monday, 14 November and nationwide on the BBC iPlayer for seven days afterwards.
