Gaddafi's London pad
The London home of Colonel Gaddafi's son Saif.
Location: 7 Winnington Close, Hampstead, N2 0UA
Description: This 11m eight-bedroom mansion in leafy Hampstead is owned by Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, son of deposed Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.
When Saif returned to Libya in March 2011 to support his beleaguered father against the advancing rebels, exiled Benghazi student squatters found a way in and occupied it.
It's part of the millions of dollars of assets around the World frozen for the next regime's rebuilding of the country.
