Latin American businesses at the Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre have warned councillors that not enough has been done to protect the area's status as a cultural and community hub.

At last month's Southwark Council assembly meeting councillors heard from Mario López from La Bodeguita restaurant, Adriana Hoyos from HS Legal and Maritza Medina from Saioa Nails.

You can listen to their deputation – and the response from councillors – above.
