There's a desperate shortage of council homes across the south east. But some authorities are addressing the problem, and have starting building programmes. Families have started moving into the first council homes to be built in Medway in more than forty years. In recent times, housing associations have taken over the role of providing accommodation to tenants, who used to rely on councils. Fifty five new homes will built. The council says it's a start. Tom Savvides talks tenant Ken Watson, councillor Howard Doe and the MP Rehman Chishti.
