Summary Jeffrey Watson report following criticism by Shelter of Vincent Crescent in the Balsall Heath area of Birmingham. Interview with residents about the living conditions.
Description Views of terraced housing on Vincent Crescent in Balsall Heath showing buildings in poor state of repair. Interior view of house. Shelter have pointed out the particularly poor outside toilet facilities, rubbish in yards and problems of dampness and poor wiring although they say the properties could be improved by spending £30 per occupant. Jeffrey Watson interviews three women who live on the street who think that more would need to be spent than £30 and complain about the conditions.
