Council tenants in Shepherds Bush living in 'squalor'

Tenants living in council accommodation in Shepherds Bush say they are living in "squalor" and that their homes are infested with bed bugs.

Resident Jane Vernon says she will not move until all homes are rid of the bugs.

Andy Slaughter MP says Hammersmith and Fulham Council is trying to get rid of some of its most vulnerable residents however, the council strongly refutes this and says it has tried to deal with the problem.
