Newham Cracks Down on Slum Homes in Olympic Borough

July 26 (Bloomberg) -- Five thousand meters from London's gleaming, white-spoked Olympic Stadium, Christine Lyons, chief planning enforcer of the London borough of Newham, has ferreted out a modern-day scene evocative of Victorian England: illegally-run properties occupied by tenants crammed into slum-like conditions in dirty rooms and even garden sheds.
