Condemned houses in Camden Town covered in street art

Street artists have turned a parade of houses due to be demolished in Camden into a canvas for a giant artwork.

This is in protest against gentrification of the area, in which they say could lose out on graffiti tourists.

The empty properties have become an unexpected magnet for artists in the last fortnight, but when bulldozers flatten the buildings as part of redevelopment of the area, the murals will go with them. 

Artist Tom Blackford explains why he has used his talent to paint a protest.
