The South London News Podcast, S1, E2: Housing crisis

Some of the most talked-about issues to have made headlines in south London in recent weeks concern housing.

In the second episode of the South London News Podcast, Hosts and Reporters Monica Charsley and Orlando Jenkinson discuss a number of the biggest stories they and their colleagues have covered concerning the housing crisis.

The impact on residents of dire social housing conditions exposed in Croydon, the financial pressures facing south London boroughs, and landlord neglect in the private sector housing are all explored.

And in an additional second half, the hosts pivot to discuss a spate of dog attacks that have been reported across several south London boroughs in recent weeks.

From the fatal maiming of ‘Freddie Mercury’ the seal in Barnes to a horrifying dog attack in Bushy Park, this episode takes a closer look at some of the issues underlying these troubling incidents.
