Latest: Housing activists leave building in Dublin city

Update 10am: A group of housing activists have left a building they'd been occupying in Dublin’s north inner city.

The High court yesterday granted an injunction to the owner of the building on Summerhill Parade to have them removed by 8am today.

An agent for the owner gained access to the property a short time ago and confirmed it was empty.

The protesters took over the house last week to highlight their concerns at the homeless crisis.

Earlier: Time up for housing activists occupying Dublin building

Update 8am: Time is up for housing activists occupying a home in Dublin's north inner city.

The High Court has ordered them to leave the house on Summerhill Parade by 8am today.

They took over the building 10 days ago as part of a protest against the current homeless crisis.

However, the owners got an injunction yesterday against the occupation of the property and six other adjoining buildings.

The court heard that attempts to get the demonstrators to identify themselves have failed and it is unclear if they will obey this morning's deadline.
