Squatters take over empty library

Squatters have taken over the old library in Maidstone town centre. The building was left empty when the Kent County Council transferred its books to a new building last year. A dozen squatters managed to enter the building - which still had water and electricity supplied.

They say they're being supported by the local community, and hope to set up a food bank and social centre for local poeple.
