A squatter has sold the one-bedroom flat he has lived in for 35 years for 710,000.

George Weiss, a friend of late comic Peter Cook, won a legal battle which ruled that because there has been no contact with his landlord for 12 years the property is his.

Mr Weiss, 64, moved into the mews house in upmarket Hampstead, North London, in 1969 reports The Sun.

He stopped paying rent in 1983 as the property fell into disrepair and has not spoken to his landlord since 1990.
