In pictures: Serbia's Gypsy 'London'
'No electricity'

A short drive from Serbia's capital, Belgrade, is the settlement of "Little London". Its inhabitants are Roma Gypsies and they have lived there for at least 30 years.

"No-one knows why it's called Little London," says Nikola, a Roma man. "Someone started using the name and it stuck."

"Life here is not very different to life in the other London," he says, "except we have rats and snakes - and no electricity".
