Future in doubt for Camden hostel over benefits cut

The owner of a hostel for the homeless in Camden claims he will have to close down because of cuts to housing benefit.

Steve Gethin says the closure will mean his 18 tenants will end up back on the streets but Labour councillor Theo Blackwell says too much as been paid for years - in the region of £700,000 - amid promises to help the occupants find a better place to live.
