i Newspaper journalist Vicky Spratt reports on our eviction hell

Vicky Spratt – activist journalist from the i Newspaper – recently visited Wordsworth Drive and Sugar Hill Close to listen and help tell our story. We shared our fears with her, describing the impact that this eviction and gentrification process is having on our lives, health, and futures. Vicky and our neighbours also tell the wider story of tenant precarity and the unaffordability of private rentals in Leeds.
