A young mum and her two children are having to ‘live in their coats and dressing gowns inside a freezing cold and damp’ Birmingham flat.

Emma Reynolds, three-year-old son Lewis and daughter Leah, 8, spend day and night wrapped up in extra layers in their ‘unfit’ property in Shannon Road, Kings Norton.


The 25-year-old claims she wakes every morning with a ‘big puddle’ on her bedroom floor from the dripping window and has to throw some of the kids’ damp toys away.
