However, the condition of the place did not stop HGV driver and auto mechanic Yan, who told onlookers making dilapidated mattresses was his “hobby”.

There are also new fences placed around the property, new, collapsed exterior walls and smart new windows to replace those previously installed.
The interior also does not disappoint.
