Dozens of families are being thrown out of their homes after Ministry of Defence (MoD) officials took the decision to evict them from former service properties with just two months’ notice, amid concerns the properties could be used to house newly arrived Afghan refugees.

Pensioners and parents with young children are being forced to look for new rental accommodation after being told by the MoD it was “disposing” of their homes, built near former military camps in Hampshire.

Tenants say the decision has caused “deep distress” and will lead to the break up of a “pleasant and thriving community”.

The decision to evict the families from their homes in the village of Bordon is one of a number around the country planned by the MoD for properties that have previously been rented out to non-service personnel.

It comes as redundant Armed Forces accommodation is being used to temporarily house hundreds of families evacuated from Afghanistan and given settled status in the UK after the Taliban regained control – including East Camp in St Athan, Vale of Glamorgan, RAF Wethersfield in Essex and service homes at Larkhill and Shrivenham, in Wiltshire. The MoD denies there are similar plans for Bordon.
