Girl 'has to sleep in cupboard'

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

A family from Milton Keynes has said their four-year-old daughter is sleeping in a walk-in cupboard because their one-bedroom flat is too small.

Stuart Richardson and Aimi Dibben want their local authority to find them a bigger home, so their daughter Ella can have a bedroom of her own.

Milton Keynes Council says it has to work within current legislation, which does not regard the family as living in overcrowded accommodation.
