City coun­cil’s re­sponse

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Police Chief -

“We were con­cerned to see the video posted on­line last week given that the prop­erty was com­pletely re­fur­bished be­fore the cur­rent res­i­dent moved in seven weeks ago. It is highly un­usual for a prop­erty to de­te­ri­o­rate so quickly and we are ur­gently in­ves­ti­gat­ing how it hap­pened.

“An in­spec­tion was car­ried out on Mon­day and the prop­erty was given a thor­ough mould wash. The res­i­dent was also given ad­vice about ways to bet­ter ven­ti­late the prop­erty.

“We are very close to se­cur­ing a per­ma­nent home for the fam­ily but as of early Wed­nes­day have been un­able to con­tact them this week de­spite re­peated at­tempts by our officers and mes­sages left.

“We’d urge the fam­ily to get in touch with us, as re­solv­ing their hous­ing sit­u­a­tion is a pri­or­ity for us.”
