NOT GOING ANYWHERE Squatters vow to STAY at Gordon Ramsay’s posh £13million London pub… claiming the former boozer is ‘theirs’

SQUATTERS have vowed to stay inside Gordon Ramsay's pub - claiming they'd come to an agreement with the owner.

The freeloaders on Thursday agreed to leave after the sweary father-of-five TV chef, 57, obtained a High Court possession order.

Bailiffs taped copies to the £13-million Grade II-listed York & Albany Hotel demanding the interlopers go straight away.

Some started walking out yesterday - but a group still remained this afternoon.

One squatter said he'd be staying, adding: "We've made a deal.

"With the owner, not Ramsay.

"We're still here, and we're going to carry on staying here. We're going to be security for him."

Another man, who said his pal was staying inside, claimed he had no intention of leaving.

He said: "They're going to wait for the bailiff.

"That's basically what they're going to end up doing."Banners which had been draped from the balcony, reading "whatever they say, squatters will stay" and "squat the lot", have been removed by the occupants.

Sixty were on Thursday believed still to be inside the pub in Camden, North London.

A source said last week: “It’s an absolute nightmare scenario for poor Gordon.

“The pub was temporarily closed whilst he was finalising a new lease, and during this handover period a gang of professional squatters somehow bypassed all the security and CCTV, and got themselves in.

“They’ve now boarded themselves in the building and are slowly taking over the place, leaving their crap everywhere and brazenly telling locals this is now their home.

“They’ve glued tight all the locks and are cooking up a storm in the kitchen, which is especially galling for Gordon.

“Some are crashing on sofas, but others have taken over the beautiful bedrooms. God knows the damage and filth."

Some of the squatters were seen walking out with plastic bags on their backs yesterday.
