Shocking pictures show the appalling state of a family's home in London which is covered in black mould and has mushrooms growing out of the walls and ceilings where sewage has leaked through.

The heart-breaking footage comes just a week after a landmark ruling concluded two-year-old Awaab Ishak died after prolonged exposure to mould - three years after his parents had complained about the damp in their one-bedroom housing association flat in Rochdale.

Kwajo Tweneboa, who shared the videos today, claimed this family is going through a 'similar' experience and implored Islington Council to do something to address the situation, which he said was raised with them last December. 

He said many of the family's belongings have been destroyed due to ongoing leaks and black mould in the bedrooms, while all remaining items have been stacked in the front room for the last year.

The mother reportedly has to sleep on the sofa in the front room due to the disgusting mould and peeling ceilings in two of the three bedrooms.

Mr Tweneboa continued: 'Mushrooms now grow from the bacteria where sewage has seeped through the walls and ceilings in the bedroom.

'The walls of the second bedroom is covered in black mould. In another corner the mould was light and growing fur, indicating two different types of mould in the same bedroom. 

'The tenants have been paying rent for a three bed property. They haven’t had two of the bedrooms for a year.

'They’ve had to resort to using foil and tape to try and keep mice out of the property. All these issues they’ve reported. 

'They said communication from Islington Council has been beyond a disgrace.

'Workmen and ‘surveyors’ have seen it but nothing ever done to fix it.'

Islington Council responded to the videos: 'Thanks for highlighting this. These images are extremely concerning. We are urgently looking into this and have DMd you for more details.' MailOnline has contacted the council and the area's MP Emily Thornberry for comment.
