Members of a protest group have clambered onto rooftops to evade bailiffs.

Members of the Justice Not Crisis group have been squatting in homes owned by Warwickshire County Cricket Club, in Pershore Road, Birmingham.

The club has asked bailiffs to remove them but the group refuse to leave.

The group say they are making a protest over a lack of affordable housing. Last month campaigners were removed from the Beechwood Hotel in Bristol Road.
