A pornography “studio” has been discovered in a former school where squatters lived for two months.

The set-up was found in a mobile classroom at the back of the former Ashmount Primary School in Hornsey Lane, Archway, where small children are said to have been living.

Security staff found a double mattress covered with a leopard skin blanket, boxes of tape recorders, and a metal thong.

A door to a former classroom was also scrawled with ‘‘Elisha’s Womb, may contain nuts’’.

About 100 squatters and eight dogs had lived in the school since early October, but were evicted by Islington Council last Wednesday after a court order was granted.
