Heygate Estate residents move from London

Residents who were moved off the Heygate Estate in south London, under a huge regeneration scheme, have claimed they were not offered enough money to afford to buy a home locally.

BBC London understands many of the residents have ended up in St Albans, Slough and Sidcup.

Reporter Ayshea Buksh spoke to former Heygate resident Jerry Flynn, Lib Dem MP for Bermondsey and Old Southwark Simon Hughes, London Mayor Boris Johnson and Southwark Labour Councillor Fiona Colley.
