Cockroaches, mould and drugs on London estate

Residents living in the one remaining block of flats on a north London estate undergoing redevelopment say they are being "left to rot", with pest infestations and security issues.

Drug addicts have been using the unlocked stairways - and cockroaches have bitten one woman's children.

The BBC Victoria Derbyshire programme's Sean Clare has been to visit the block and hear how residents are taking a stand.

Watch the Victoria Derbyshire programme on BBC Two and the BBC News channel, 10:00 to 11:00 GMT - and see more of our stories here.
