  • ITV News published this video item, entitled “UK’s housing crisis exposed as girl, 7, sleeps in tent to avoid mould | ITV News” – below is their description.

    Seven-year-old Skyler sleeps in a tent on top of her bed. Her sleeping set up isn’t a peculiar childhood request – she’s trying to avoid the black mould covering her walls.

    Skyler, her three siblings and her mum Sherri Smith are among the hundreds of people who’ve complained to ITV News about their squalid social housing. Over the past six weeks, we’ve witnessed dangerous living conditions and heard from tenants telling us those responsible don’t listen to their complaints.

    In Walthamstow, north-east London, Sherri shows us the thick black mould that has engulfed her home for eight years. Her housing association hasn’t fully fixed the source of the problem, so it always comes back.
