"I WOULDN'T MOVE FOR ANYONE": 66-YEAR-OLD MAN LIVING IN LAST HOUSE ON ABANDONED COUNCI

An OAP who lives in the last house standing on an abandoned council estate has refused to move and warned any attempts to kick him out of his home will result in "World War III".

Charlie Wright once counted relatives as his neighbours while growing up in his four-bedroom terrace house, where he was raised with his eight siblings.

But now he stands alone after the council estate that surrounded him was torn down, leaving his house the last one standing.

Decorating his property with Union Jack flags, Mr Wright refuses to allow his home to be demolished and warns any attempts to force him out will result in "World War III".

The four-bedroom house is flanked by two derelict properties.

Charlie told the Liverpool Echo: "I was born in this house. All our family lived here, there were nine of us.

Once they got married, they moved and I was the last one - me and me mam.

"When you're born in a house, it's a part of your life, it's a part of you. I wouldn't move for any one."

Charlie has lived his whole life at the house in Birkenhead

He added that "if anyone comes near this house, it will be World War III".

The former oil worker doesn't live in the house alone as a close pal moved in 15 years ago.

Charlie, 66, used to work for the Mobil Oil company which had a plant just round the corner from his house.

He said: "All my life, the only road I crossed since I was 16 was that bottom road," Charlie said. "In them days, the work round here was unbelievable.
