    Due to safety concerns raised about gas supply to the buildings in Ledbury Estate, Southwark, South London, hundreds of residents will be moved out for a while, according to 24 Housing.

    The buildings in Ledbury Estate in Southwark have been constructed in a similar way to Ronan Point, a tower block in Newham which collapsed in 1968 as a result of a gas explosion, killing three. 

    An English Housing Survey last month revealed that due to safety hazards and inadequate facilities, 29% of homes in the private rented sector do not meet the National Decent Home Standard, which means that 1.4m households live in unsuitable accommodation.

    Also, Charity Commission figures show that below 15% of the £18.9m raised through donations for victims has reached the people it was meant for.
