“I’m Gavin. At 16 I had already decided with my life that I wanted to be a chef, as I have been it part-time since the age of 13. Whilst training, I worked at various London hotels. Eventually, I settled down with a career at the Hilton Hotels. I later married at the age of 25.
I first started squatting when I was 14 and carried on for the next 25 years. I saw a lot of violence and I saw people die from the drugs they were using. I woke up one day and the geezer next to me was dead, with the needle still in his arm. That’s the day I left.
