Concern over Battersea development's few family homes

Just three of the first 2,500 flats approved so far to be built at the Battersea Power Station site will be "affordable" family-sized homes, which local campaigners have described as "derisory".

The company behind the development told the BBC on Thursday that it now intends to bring forward 300 more homes earlier than planned.

BBC London's political editor Tim Donovan spoke to local architect and campaigner Keith Garner, Alex Hilton from Generation Rent and Rob Tincknell from the Battersea Power Station Development Company.
