Asylum seekers 'still human' says man critical of poor homes

The sub-standard condition of some housing for asylum seekers in Wales is "an accident waiting to happen", according to the Welsh Refugee Coalition.

Problems seen by BBC Wales include broken fire alarms, leaking plumbing, damp, and broken electrical sockets.

Clearsprings Ready Homes which provides all asylum accommodation in Wales declined to comment.

The Home Office said it was committed to providing safe, secure housing.

Asylum seeker Sohail Ahmed said despite his complaints about the conditions in which he is living, nothing has been done.
