Revenge eviction law 'not working'

A new law designed to help protect people renting homes from rogue landlords isn't working, say MPs and housing lawyers.

Faulty electrics, damp and broken boilers that don't get fixed are all officially classed as category one hazards which pose a risk to health.

But many private tenants are worried that if they complain too much, they will be evicted.

The law in England changed in 2015 to make "revenge evictions" illegal.

But despite that change, figures gathered by Radio 1 Newsbeat through Freedom of Information requests show that more than half of local councils across England haven't used these powers.
