Residents of Waltham Forest among the most likely to lose their home in London, according to charity Shelter.

Today it was revealed that the borough is one of ten in England in which residents are deemed at serious risk of repossession or eviction.

According to the charity, one homeowner in every 46 in Waltham Forest falls into serious problems every week.

This makes it number nine of ten 'hotspots' for eviction.

Newham is the worst hit, with one home in every 34 being at risk.

Others in the top ten include Brent, Lewisham, Newham, Haringey and Enfield.

In neighbouring Epping Forest, only one in every 182 homes is a risk.

The research is based on data recorded by the Ministry of Justice over the last financial year, showing how many homeowners and private or social renters have received a possession notice for their home.
