MPs criticise government cuts to regeneration projects

People have been "left stranded in appalling conditions" as a result of government cuts to regeneration projects, a group of MPs has said.

The Communities and Local Government Committee said efforts to improve deprived parts of the North and Midlands had been stopped mid-stream.

It said the government had "no adequate strategy" for regeneration in England and must help those left "trapped".

Housing Minister Grant Shapps said help was coming soon for the worst affected.
