Court of Appeal finds against callous Southwark council refusal to rehouse

One family I know were told the waiting list was 2 years - yet three months later they were offered, and told that if they did not accept, there would unlikely be another for quite some time, a property that suited their needs - the only catch was they had to accept it within 3 days so maybe not as guilty as you think....
