Watch the video. This is quite shocking. It shows one street in London where there are illegal structures at the ends of gardens, housing illegal immigrants.

A series of modern day British slums have been described as "sheds with beds".

The illegal structures, some dangerous and cramped, are offered by landlords - often to Britain's illegal immigrants.

Many occupants send money back to their families in India, paying thousands of pounds to traffickers. But the economic downturn means work has dried up.

The BBC's Chris Rogers investigates, in the first of two special reports

Looks like a shanty town in SA.


Though I fell sorry for them, I feel more sorry for the people who have bought there property and have these sheds at the bottom off there gardens, It must stink and there must be vermin too.

They're turning certain areas into Mumbai in Britain. It's quite shocking that some areas are being turned into shanty towns like this and people are being charged £500/month to live in squalor.
