RESIDENTS OF A Dublin city squatted property look set to remain there for another night after a day in which workers attempted to erect fences at the site.

The complex is abandoned and the squatters say about 30 people live there.

A video of the squatters, workers and a number of gardaí wrestling at a fence was shared widely online today.
