Family fights to keep council house

A family are fighting to stop two brothers being kicked out of their council home after 73 years.

Brian and David Adams were told by Havering council that they had to move out just days after their brother Jack died in November last year.

Their parents moved into the house at the outbreak of the Second World War and they brought up 15 children there.

Their father Percy Adams died in 1986 and the tenancy was passed to Jack.

But Havering Council insists that it can only be transferred once in the same family and are going to court on November 12 to get a repossession warrant.
