Campaigners moved on; SOCIAL.

Squatters campaigning for more affordable housing have had to abandon a second protest site just yards away from their original tent city.

The Justice For Crisis group had set up a new campafter the city council secured a court order on Friday forcing them to leave their squat on Vardon Way, Balsall Heath, by November 11.

But the second area is also covered by the order meaning the protesters have been forced to admit defeat.

They have been demanding the city council provide more rented affordable homes for families and have questioned the policy of selling land to private developers.

Steve Austin, a spokesman for the group, said: "There are other options we are looking and we will work out our next move."
