Two security guards sustained facial injuries and at least 18 others required hospital treatment. SQUATTERS are enjoying front-row seats in Leicester Square after taking over a 20m building with 50 rooms next to the Odeon cinema. The eight-strong art collective had perfect views from their first-floor window as stars including George Clooney walked up the red carpet for the Fantastic Mr Fox premiere. They have also been holding life draw- ing classes since taking over the six- storey property a fortnight ago. The group, known as The Oubliette, which dedicates itself to finding large work spaces for struggling artists, has put up banners highlighting its cam- paign. It says it gained access to the building legally through an open window on the top floor, but said it expected to be evicted within the next two weeks. Last month the squatters took over the former Mexican embassy in Mayfair and the former Tanzanian high commission next door. Oubliette spokesman Dan Simon, 31, said they were looking for an owner with an empty building in central London who would allow them to stay long-term in exchange for protecting the property. He said of the Leicester Square squat: There are four flats as well as a two- storey business centre. Parts of it have been empty for around 20 years. Squatter Talita Rossi, 24, a fashion designer from Brazil, said: Its crazy living on Leicester Square. We are prob- ably the only people who live here. by georgina littlejohn A 32-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested after the body of a teenage girl he is alleged to have met over the internet was found in a field near Sedgefield, County Durham. He had been arrested earlier the same day for motoring offences and took officers to the scene. Police said the 17-year-old left her home in Darlington on Sunday night, telling her mother she was staying overnight with a friend. The girls mother had become increasingly concerned for her daughters welfare after repeatedly ringing her mobile phone and getting no reply. The girls body was fully clothed when it was found and there was no indication she had been sexually assaulted. Red carpet view: the squatters in Leicester Square and their banners.
