Tomb With a View

Kathryn Quinn

A homeless man has told how he he ended in a real dead end street - when he moved into a grave after losing his home.

Bratislav Stojanovic, 43, has shared the burial plot with the ashes of a a family who died out more than 100 years ago in Nis, Serbia.

But after giving the grave a changing tombs-style makeover he says he feels at home.

"It is dry and it is warm. I have some lamps and my personal possessions.

"It isn't a palace but it is more comfortable than the street," he explained.

Bratislav lost his home in the town after running up debts.

He moved into the grave after dossing down in the streets for months.

"People are very kind to me, they sometimes bring me food or clothes.

"Sometimes I have to get my food from rubbish bins but it can be very nutritious. It's amazing what people throw away," he explained.

"It doesn't frighten me to sleep in a grave. The dead are dead. I'm more frightened of being hungry.

"And if I die in the night, at least I'm in the right place," added Bratislav.

Officials at the cemetery say their squatter can stay as long as he does not disturb other visitors.

"The family who owned the tomb are long gone so technically it belongs to no-one. If he behaves himself there are no plans to evict him," said a spokesman.
