What caused the flooding?

Leaks from the ceiling. Possibly pipes.

This is going to create another massive 'fire drill' where everyone that is doing the right thing spends huge resources double proving it.

Councils are less regulated than Housing Associations. They should have a phone line of last resource, as we do. So someone can raise an issue that is unresolved.

Explains why it was pea-ing down.

Absolutely shocking conditions shown on News At Ten last night, but why did the bloke living there start the old 'it's because I'm black' cobblers again.

I would wager most employees of the council in Croydon are black.

If the council were racist when it comes to housing improvements then most of Croydon would be like downtown Delhi.

Fair point, but at the same time the place was such a hell hole that I can see why a person would be utterly bewildered and confused as to why the council didn't give a s!it. The take home from the story is more how disgusting it is that people are expected to live in such conditions. And of course how predictable that as soon as it's highlighted by ITV they're putting them all up in a hotel and care all of a sudden. All they care about is bad publicity.

Very true but to bring race into this was just wrong

I agree, but I can see why someone would almost be paranoid about why they've been left in such an unbelievable situation. It's not as if the real answer (that they clearly didn't give a sh!t about him.. most likely because he's poor and powerless) is any better anyway. With that much mold growing on the walls I'm surprised the bloke wasn't also claiming to have been abducted by aliens .

And Croydon Council know all about hotels.

Indeed. Perhaps Council Officials should be prosecuted. Really feel for the residents and you are right, itís not a colour thing, itís a you are poor and we donít give a flying fig about you.... just keep paying us a huge wage
