Fight to save Hackney Homes from collapse

Tenants living in a terrace in Hackney earmarked for emergency demolition after large cracks appeared in it, may have had a reprieve.

It had been feared that eight people would lose their homes and two businesses would have to shut after the building was declared 'incredibly unstable' on Friday night. But now, there could be some good news for the residents who have been made temporarily homeless.
