The last remaining occupant of Apollo House has left the building in the city centre this evening.

The man who is believed to be from Pakistan, refused to leave Apollo House earlier today because of a number of grievances about his treatment in Ireland.

He also claimed that some of his possessions had been stolen while in Apollo House.

The man was taken to Pearse Street Garda Station and was shortly released. 

The Peter McVerry Trust had offered the man a private room earlier today and have since said they will keep the offer open.

Earlier on today it was believed that the occupation of the office building had ended after Home Sweet Home said it would house the people who were living there at other locations in the city. 

However, a number of volunteers from the homelessness campaign group had stayed with the man, who had refused offers of accommodation.

Home Sweet Home said earlier this morning in a tweet that "The number one priority for us is ensuring that the people who were in Apollo House can access the support services they need."

Rosi Leonard from Home Sweet Home, said it was emotional to leave Apollo House.
