Somali refugee family of nine pay just £90-a-week to live in the £2.2m London council house they’ve called home for 15 years

This London council house is worth £2.2million – but the tenants who live there pay just £90 a week.

The four bedroom Georgian property in London’s trendy Clerkenwell district could be rented out for £900 a week.

But Islington Council charge the social tenants who live there a 10th of the market rate – making it one of the UK’s most expensive council houses.

Somalian refugees Muriidi Abati, 57, and wife Maryan, 43, have lived there for 15 years with their seven children aged between eight and 23.
