Police raids in crackdown on 'slum landlords'

Help

Many of them were illegal immigrants sleeping in so-called 'sheds with beds' - illegal structures provided by unscrupulous landlords.

Ministers have launched a nationwide crackdown, vowing to tackle those who illegally house people in converted substandard outbuildings.
