New data available on London's debt
This is the first systematic analysis of the capital's debt problems and it shows that 8% (230,000) of London households are in arrears with bills, compared to the English average of less than 6%.
The proportion of landlord repossessions in London is higher than anywhere else in England. Brent has the highest proportion of repossession orders in each of the last three years and nine of the ten boroughs with the highest rates of landlord repossession are in Outer London. For mortgage repossessions, the rate in London in 2009 was higher than any other English region except the North East.
