Pathfinder home regeneration scheme scrapped

Residents say a housing programme, set up by Labour nine years ago and then scrapped by the coalition government, has left them trapped in a housing nightmare.

The Pathfinder scheme set out to regenerate parts of the Midlands and the north of England and thousands of properties were demolished but not nearly as many new houses were built.

Now some residents live in the middle of a building site.
