A family left living alone on a housing state say they are in "hell".
Their say their bins haven't been collected for six years and their home is infested with rats.
Demonique and Thabo Wilson and their children, claim they've been abandoned by Salford Council, as neighbouring houses began being boarded up.
Six years ago a judge ruled the council had breached the Wilson's human rights by not offering them another home to buy.
The council are currently appealing that decision, as a result the case is currently on hold.
