Rogue landlords targeted by new scheme in Newham

Newham Council in east London is becoming the first local authority in England to introduce a compulsory system of landlord registration.

Owners of privately-rented homes now have to declare criminal convictions and meet health and safety standards - or face a fine of up to £20,000.

Mike Sergeant reports.
