London squatting community figures revealed by Met Police

Almost half of those prosecuted for squatting in London are from Romania, according to figures from the Metropolitan Police.

However, homeless charity Broadway warned these figures are not representative of the diversity of communities they encounter.

The Romanian embassy stressed squatting affects many communities, not just the Romanian community.

BBC reporter Emma North spoke to home owner Sam Mosedale and homeless charity Broadway's Howard Sinclair.
