Families were left standing in the freezing cold as boiling hot water gushed into the communal corridor in their flats and a woman ended up in A&E after plaster from her ceiling fell on her.
These were some of the tenants who spoke to ITV News about their plight as a government inquiry into the regulation of social housing in England is underway, prompted by ITV News’ investigation.
