Abandoned untaxed car

Reported via desktop in the Abandoned Vehicles category anonymously at 15:26, Mon 1 November 2021

Sent to Hackney Council less than a minute later

This car has been parked around here for some months (I wonder whether the report of a car abandoned by the nearby hotel may be this vehicle, but hard to tell as there is no photo). It has been in this particular spot, on the south side of Gloucester Drive on the Queen's Drive side of the traffic barrier, outside the church, for at least a month. The front windscreen is smashed, and the rear windscreen is smashed out (illustrated in photo). It is being used for shelter by two homeless people (unclear whether it belongs to either of them) who are at present sleeping rough in the grounds of the church (I've tried to get Streetlink to engage, but seemingly to no avail) so some sensitivity when dealing with it would be appreciated. The car is untaxed and uninsured.
