Barking’s MP has vowed to help residents end a two-year fight for working utilities “for once and for all”.

On Friday, residents at Robert Lewis House met with Margaret Hodge about ongoing issues with their boiler.

Housing provider L&Q has now said it will award the Mallards Road residents £200 in compensation this week, but Ms Hodge said the “unacceptable” issues needed to be resolved long-term.

“L&Q needs to get their act together and fix this problem permanently,” she said.

“I look forward to continue working with L&Q and residents to resolve this issue once and for all.”
