A newspaper reports that a homeless chef has been living at London's Gatwick Airport for three years.

The Argus newspaper in the southern city of Brighton says Anthony Delaney has been camping out at the airport's south terminal and leaving only rarely to collect unemployment benefits.

The newspaper says the 41-year-old ate, showered and slept at the airport despite dozens of run-ins with police and a civil order banning him from the facility.

The paper says Delaney is due to be sentenced next month. He acknowledged violating the order in court Monday.

Sussex Police say they first stopped Delaney at the airport in 2004 and have recorded more than 30 encounters with him since.
