Islington tenants say their flats are making their children seriously ill

People living in properties in north London owned by housing association Hyde Group have said the poor condition of their flats is leaving their children seriously ill.

The families at Alderwick Court in Islington say they've spent four years complaining to the council and have started legal action, but their situation remains the same. London Live reported on this story in February and have revisited the flats to speak again with the families who are affected.  

Hyde Housing declined to be interviewed, but Lee Daly, the Head of Housing at The Hyde Group said:

 "It would be inappropriate for us to comment, at this time, on issues concerning individuals living at Alderwick Court due to the legal case in progress.

We can however confirm that we maintain ongoing dialogue with residents' legal representatives and are making every effort to negotiate access in order to carry out any outstanding works."
