A Somalian mother and son have been living on a high street bench for three years after turning down two-bedroom flats in London.
Wandsworth Council has desperately tried to rehouse them and offered them two refurbished properties in Tooting, south west London, which typically cost £1,500 a month.
But the pair chose to remain on the bench despite last-ditch pleas from their family and members of the local Somalian community.
The mother and son have been surviving thanks to the generosity of locals who give them food and water outside Tooting Library.
It is so worth it to have open borders.
