Heygate Estate residents fight compulsory purchase order

The Heygate estate in south London was once home to 3,000 residents but it now has a population of just three households.

The remaining residents are fighting compulsory purchase orders which would force them out to make way for a huge development.

Southwark Council insists at least a quarter of the new homes will be affordable.
