Woman finds squatter living in her shed & tidying her garden
A UK woman was rather shocked to find a migrant squatter living in her shed. Kelly Dudley originally assumed the squatter was the landlord's gardener when she first saw him pottering around her messy garden. After seeing him leave the shed on a Sunday morning, she called the police who discovered he had moved in and decorated the place with furniture.
Ms Dudley said: "It beggars belief. The police came and tried to speak to him but all he could say was his name is John, he'd been there five days and he drives lorries and cranes. I've got no idea how he did it and I've been on maternity leave while he's been there, so he did it right under my nose."
Of her uninvited shed guest, she admitted: "He's cleared my whole garden completely without any tools and once I'd finished being scared I actually felt a bit sorry for him - he's clearly very house-proud, it's been kept very tidy and is probably nicer than some bedsits you can get in Banbury. I put some pot plants out and he even planted them in the garden one day.
"He offered to pay me rent and do my gardening for free if I let him stay there. I've got a six-month-old daughter and I might have considered it if I didn't have her."
John wasn't charged with any offences and has since complied with the police's request to move on. From photos provided by the Manchester Evening News, it appears he has left several of his possessions behind.
