Footballers Ferdinand and Zamora seek affordable homes legacy

Ex-England captain Rio Ferdinand has told BBC London he wants to build social and affordable housing in the capital to help ease the pressure on councils and combat the housing crisis.

The former player has teamed up with ex Fulham player Bobby Zamora and current West Ham captain Mark Nobel to set up the Legacy Foundation.

All three men grew up on council housing estates in London.

They are about to start work building 1300 homes just outside Luton.
