Migrants staying at a hotel in central London last night barricaded the entrance and staged a protest over “inhuman conditions”.
Around 25 migrants refused to return to their rooms on Thursday.
The asylum seekers – originally from Bangladesh, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Iran, Iraq and Somalia – have been housed at the Comfort Inn in Pimlico.
Migrants vowed to sleep outside the hotel with blankets, duvets, cushions and suitcases.
They also barricaded the entrance and used a marker pen as an improvised bolt to “lock” the front door.
The protest looks set to continue until migrants are given single rooms.
Many of the asylum seekers were given single rooms with en suite bathrooms during a separate stay at another hotel.
However, while staying at the Comfort Inn, there are reportedly four migrants to a single room, with two bunk beds and a “smelly” toilet.
A 27-year-old Iranian told The Telegraph: “Two square metres is not enough for sleeping four people. And when you go to the toilet, the smell damages you.”
