Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs allow homeless to stay in hotel building

Manchester United legends Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs reportedly tell a group of homeless people that they are allowed to stay in their hotel until February.

Manchester United legends Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs are reportedly allowing a group of homeless people to stay in their hotel until renovations begin.

Homeless rights activists have been squatting in the Grade-II listed building in Manchester for some time.

Neville and Giggs purchased the building, which once served as the city's Stock Exchange, for £1.5m, but they will not begin transforming the venue into a five-star hotel until February.

Leader of homeless campaign group Manchester Angels Wesley Hall is quoted by The Independent as saying: "I was crying and shaking after I got off the phone. The graft has paid off.

"What a great guy Gary Neville is. We've been in negotiations with him and things are looking good. He said the main building work isn't taking place until February, so we'll be okay to stay until then."

Neville and Giggs own Hotel Football, which opened its doors earlier this year and is situated adjacent to Old Trafford.
