ALL but one of the remaining tenants living in a former hotel owned by football manager Harry Rednapp have moved out, the Daily Echo understands.

The site has now been boarded-up ahead of redevelopment.

Five people left the Belgravia Hotel on Friday, January 31, which the I'm A Celebrity winner wants to convert into 14 luxury flats, leaving just one person remaining at that time.

Disabled Andy Hunt, aged 56, son of the couple who leased the Christchurch Road property as a hotel for homeless people for nearly three decades, was still waiting to be rehoused.

His sister, Karen, speaking to the Echo as the site was being boarded up last week, said: "It is already like a building site, but he has to stay here. We are not very keen on that but it is what we have to do.

"We are very wary about leaving him here, because he could have a fall or something.

"He'll also be locked in as they are going to put a fence up – so we are not quite sure what is going to happen to be honest."

Karen said no-one had served any eviction notice on her brother, and she felt that was unlikely to happen.

She said: "He's on the housing list but has been told he won't be rehoused if he makes himself homeless.

"If he had a notice from the bailiffs the the town hall says they could help him."

A spokesman for Pierfront Properties, whose directors are Harry and Sandra Redknapp, said all residents had moved out voluntarily.

Plans to convert the hotel into flats and houses have been approved by Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (BCP) Council.

In October 2019 Pierfront Properties said they would not evict anyone living on the site at that time.

A spokesman said they were "working closely" with charity Shelter to help the 12 residents leave "one by one".

Two previous applications to demolish the hotel building had been refused.
