Children lie on a pile of possessions outside Fatti's Mansions in Jeppe Street following an operation by 600 Red Ants to clear the 10-story block of its illegal occupants. Following their removal the town council were supposed to provide the residents with alternative accommodation but after a number of days on the streets they were moved to a temporary camp where they spent several weeks living in tents. The Red Ants are a controversial private security company often hired to clear squatters from land and so-called 'hijacked' properties.
