British film-maker Mike Leigh had to find a new location for movie VERA Drake after squatters chased his crew from an abandoned building in central London.

The SECRETS + LIES director was left fuming after an angry mob barred entry to the location in the capital's Holborn district.

However, he was able to continue filming after finding a replacement.

The 61-year-old says, "I couldn't give a stuff about them."
