A woman with asthma says living in her severely damp council house is affecting her health.
Tenant Emma Burbury says she’s been asking Cornwall Council for help for two years, but no action has been taken.
Emma has chronic asthma which she says has worsened since moving to the rented property in Tideford near Saltash.
The bathroom and bedroom ceilings are covered in black mould.
Emma says she’s tried cleaning the walls, venting the house, using extractors and keeping the heating on, but nothing has stopped the damp from spreading.
There is hope that the problem will be resolved. Cornwall Council has told ITV News that repair work is due to begin next week.
