Three children found living in Thamesmead garages
Police in Thamesmead discovered three children sleeping in garages on the Moorings ward in Thamesmead.
The incident does show the ever more desperate conditions some are living in as homeslessness spikes. Just this week I covered how Greenwich’s cabinet are set to approve plans to spend millions on buying homes out in Kent.
Bexley Council have approved very few developments with social housing in recent years – and often even without so-called “affordable” homes.
Police stated the children were found in Moorings yet then said Bexley Council have taken charge. The Moorings estate is in Greenwich – as is the entirety of the wider council ward.
The Met Police’s page for the Moorings also has a map which shows it entirely in Greenwich.
The Met have been asked for comment.
