Believe it or not we were blighted by dossers and junkies for years in Devon Mansions. They used to go to our roofs and stay there for days if not weeks till they got moved by the Police every now and then. Southwark Council
didn't do anything for years.
It was only thanks to “one particular leaseholder” who involved the Health and Safety Executive, as the Council's Environmental Health Officers weren't interested, that Southwark Council
eventually carried out some works to stop them from gaining access to the roof.
Of course as leaseholders we were made to pay dearly for that but I think it was a price worth paying for.
