In the beginning, the new high rise blocks had been a godsend to those on low incomes.
Now many were trapped in a property they could no longer afford but were unable to sell after new legislation meant apartments higher than five storeys could not be bought on finance.
Who, other than the wealthy, had vast cash sums available, and why should they buy an apartment when they could afford property with land and a garden.
Enter new landlords charging the earth in rent.
Now, few were occupied, and one tower block was awaiting demolition.
