Illegal evictions likely to increase as housing benefit cap bites

This video by BNCTV  from March last year focuses on one case of illegal eviction by a private landlord and the work of Brent Citizens Advice Bureau. 

There are likely to be many more cases this year as the housing benefit cap and welfare benefit cuts bite.  With only one Brent Council officer dealing with the issue Brent CAB will be under considerable pressure.

What happened to the landlord?

How many rogue Landlords did Brent Council prosecute in 2012? My guess is 0 because in Brent talk is cheap.
