The Guardian – Mould and squalid housing ‘making NHS crisis worse’ 

The Guardian says a senior doctor has said that thousands of babies and toddlers are being admitted to hospital in England each year with lung conditions probably linked to damp and mould-ridden homes.

Andy Knox, tells the paper that damp and mould-ridden homes are having a “profoundly negative impact on the nation’s health”. Figures suggest damp is five times more common in private rented homes than in owner-occupied ones. The housing department says everyone deserves to live in a safe and decent home, and that’s why the government is determined to crack down on rogue landlords.
