Airbnb member finds flat “trashed” and used for orgy

Airbnb lends support after noisy New Year’s Eve party
Airbnb says it is giving support to a member of the site whose London flat was “trashed” and used for an orgy during a New Year’s Eve party.
A neighbour called Christina McQuillan, a magazine designer, to tell her that dozens of people were holding a large party at the property, which had been rented out for one night.
McQuillan arrived to find chaos at the scene and called the police after she was assaulted.
“It was horrific,” the Evening Standard quoted her as saying. “Me and my partner got to the property and there were hundreds of people on the streets. We entered the property and we told her to shut it down immediately. This girl just laughed and said ‘no, I’m holding a party’.
“My partner decided to cut the power upstairs and in the bedroom they were having a mass orgy.”
Airbnb did not say if it would be giving compensation to McQuillan but that it was providing full support. It added that out of 35 million guests staying on Airbnb properties globally in 2015, there were only 540 reports of “significant property damage” costing more than $1,000.
