Islington residents demand to be rehomed by housing association

Residents on an estate in North London say they're "living like Victorians" and are demanding to be rehomed because their properties are in a state of disrepair.

Several tenants in Alderwick Court in Islington say their houses have been leaking for years and as a result mould has grown and even ceilings have caved in.

They say the bad conditions have had a negative effect on their health and are demanding Hyde Housing the association who owns the properties to do something about it.
