German residents build FENCE around flats to keep away from new refugee centre

RESIDENTS at an apartment complex in Germany have erected a 1.63 metre-high fence around their building in anticipation of a new refugee shelter opening in the area.

More than 300 asylum seekers will move into the new shelter in the Grunau district of Leipzig next month, following a renovation project that cost £5.2million (€6million).

But locals in an adjacent block of flats are fuming with the development and have built the fence in an effort to keep the migrants out.
