Tenant documents life in ‘cockroach-infested’ council housing

A council housing tenant said he and his family have been left in “unliveable” accommodation for three years that “is not even fit for animals”. As well as dealing with an infestation of mice and cockroaches and an “asbestos-filled ceiling” at the property in Mitcham, south London, Kwajo Tweneboa, 22, said he and his two siblings were threatened with eviction when their father died from cancer last year. Mr Tweneboa said he was driven to share pictures of his rotten kitchen and mouldy wallpaper on social media out of sheer desperation.
