The cost of housing in the capital is pushing more and more families into poverty, with the 4 worst hit areas in the UK here in London - that's according to the latest report from the End Child Poverty Coalition.
It says when housing costs are taken into account, the boroughs of Tower Hamlets, Newham, Hackney and Islington, have the highest percentage of children living without the basics.
The Mayor of London said it was important to lobby Government to make sure it did more to address the issue of child poverty.
His response to the report came as he announced an extra £15million of funding to help provide youth services.
This was confirmed during a visit to a footballing project in Tulse Hill called Football Beyond Borders.
