ITV News published this video item, entitled “‘I couldn’t provide them a bed, there’s no space’ – Families stuck in overcrowded homes | ITV News” – below is their description.
The Ahmed family in England are forced to make the most of every inch of the small space they have in a cramped, crumbling two-bed home.
A 15-year-old girl sleeps in a room with her two brothers, aged 14 and 10. In the other mouldy, damp bedroom, their parents share a bed with their two-year-old toddler.
The number of families forced to live like this is rising dramatically. They are trapped in overcrowded social housing because they cannot afford to privately rent a bigger one.
