    Hammersmith and Fulham council has announced that is has no homeless families living in bed and breakfast accommodation, reports Inside Housing.

    The problem has been a particular issue for London due to a lack of suitable social housing and temporary accommodation.

    Lisa Homan, H&F council cabinet member for housing, said: “This is fantastic news that shows our efforts over the last year to find suitable, proper housing for families in crisis are working. Keeping young families out of temporary B&B accommodation is a big result. It’s not only the right thing to do for the families it also saves scarce taxpayer money.”
