From BBC



Squatters have taken over two £15m mansions on London's Park Lane.




The squats at 94 and 95 Park Lane overlook Hyde Park and have the Dorchester Hotel as a neighbour.



The group of about 30 artists, students and musicians took over the seven-story buildings about three weeks ago saying they had stood empty for two years.



Squatting is not illegal in England if the entry is not forced and no criminal damage is caused. It is believed the Duke of Westminster owns the buildings

No more 250 quid a night hotel rooms!
