Infamous Ferrier Estate rebuilt

The last surviving fragment of one of London's most notorious estates will be reduced to rubble by the end of the week - completing a demolition lasting more than four years.

Residents welcome new housing on notorious estate

The Ferrier housing estate was once so notorious, that if you told would-be employers you lived there you would not get the job.

But the transformation of the estate in Kidbrooke is underway, with the last of its tower blocks being torn down - after a four-year programme of demolition.

The area is now called "Kidbrooke Village", thanks to a regeneration scheme costing £1 billion.
