Squatters who call themselves the "Love Activists" have taken over another disused building in Birkenhead.

The group recently occupied the former Barclay’s Bank in Hamilton Square in a protest against homelessness.

The disused bank on Hamilton Square was occupied by the protesters

At the time the activists said: "There's approximately 1.1m empty commercial properties in the UK so why is there a homeless crisis.

"Well the homeless crisis was manufactured. There's enough empty buildings in the UK it's just there's no money to be made by people being housed.

"Barclays bank own 97% of third energy which has vested interests in fracking in Yorkshire."

The group have now left the bank and have moved to the former Cole Street Primary School in Alvanley Place.

On social media the Love Activists posted pictures of their new base and said: “We have left the bank and now we’re here it’s much better.”

The school closed its doors in 2011 due to falling numbers and remaining pupils were transferred to nearby Cathcart Street Primary.

A police spokesman said: “Merseyside Police can confirm officers were called to reports that a group of individuals had gained access to a disused building in Birkenhead yesterday, Tuesday 18 April.

“Officers were called to Cole Street Primary School in Alvanley Place at 8am.

“The owner of the building has made aware and the situation is being monitored by Merseyside Police.”

In September of 2015 activists took over the empty Bank of England building in Castle Street, Liverpool, for two weeks before they were evicted.
