Squatters living inside a £15m Belgravia mansion have been moved out by bailiffs after a court ordered them to leave.
A dawn raid this morning (Wednesday) saw over 20 bailiffs from a private company, as well as police, come to carry out the eviction.
The squatters, who live-streamed the process online and chanted “The world is watching”, initially appeared to resist but then left peacefully.

The house, on Eaton Square, is owned by Russian oligarch Andrey Goncharenko.
While the squatters lived there, it was also used to house homeless people.
Last week, a group attacked the building with bricks. The squatters accused the vandals of being “fascists”.
At the time, the Metropolitan Police said: “The suspects made off before officers arrived. Officers have conducted local searches and are patrolling the local area. There have been no arrests. Inquiries continue.”
