Thousands of new homes could be created across the capital if the space occupied by disused council-owned garages was freed up.

Around 41% of lock-up garages owned by councils across London are empty or in disrepair.

The data is based on a freedom of information request submitted to all 32 London boroughs, and the findings were made from 24 complete responses received.
