The skinniest home in Britain looks set to be torn down after the owner lost a legal fight with a London council. The narrow property is barely two metres wide, and was built between two houses in Leyton, where a garage used to stand.

One neighbour said: "For a long time it was a horrible shed, not even a garage. They seem to have put this bizarre front on it, but what was there before was really, really horrible. I don’t have anything against it."
