New figures from the helpline of the housing and homelessness charity Shelter show a massive rise in calls from renters at risk of losing their homes.
A study commissioned by Shelter shows 45% of people renting in South West England are living in homes that are damp, cold, overcrowded or in a bad state of repair.
New research from Shelter shows 10 per cent of renters say their health has been affected by landlords' failure to carry out repairs or deal with poor conditions.
An investigation carried out by Shelter has found complaints about landlords to local councils have increased by 27 per cent in the last three years.
Shelter is urging councils to crack down on rogue landlords, as its research reveals they continue to cause misery for tenants across England.
