A BBC investigation found people shielding in homes with widespread damp and even rodents.

Conditions inside some housing lived in by people vulnerable to coronavirus are “utterly shameful,” according to former government adviser, Dame Louise Casey.

A BBC News investigation found people shielding in homes with frequent leaks, widespread damp and even rodents living in a kitchen ceiling.
