Squatters move into flood-hit Bundaberg homes

By Frances Adcock, Friday June 28, 2013 - 13:23 EST

Police say squatters have moved into homes in Bundaberg, in south-east Queensland, abandoned after the city's major flood.

Parts of North Bundaberg inundated by floodwaters in January are still cordoned off.

Officers have reported that a number of people were living in two flood-affected properties in recent weeks.

No-one has been charged but police say they are investigating whether any property has been stolen.
