Squalid one-bed flat with iron bars on the windows up for rent for £800-a-month

A SQUALID one-bedroom room with iron bars on the windows is to be let for a shocking £800 a month.

The tiny room is not more than few metres wide and renters would share a "communal" kitchen.

Landlords say the room has now become available for longterm rent, initially built as part of a hotel next to a car garage.

The London Shelton Hotel say it's a "very rare opportunity" to live in a "quality hotel room".

For just shy of £1,000 a month, you will have to share the kitchen, not pictured, with other hotel guests or renters.

And although it boasts an ensuite, the windows are barred up.

Estate agents Rightmove say the room is "modern and aesthetically appealing finish, with carpeted flooring."

And the rental price is offered with bills included.

Although the squalid flat may leave a bit to be desired, it's seconds from Finsbury Park in North London by an abundance of bars, restaurants and a "culturally rich area".

The only other flat being let for £800 in the area is also a studio flat, but with a double bed and its own kitchen in the room.

For the same price, you could rent a three-bed semi-detached house in Lancashire.

To rent the same in Finsbury Park, you would be faced with between £2,500 to £4,000 a month.

Also in London, horrific pictures showed the inside of a three-bedroom home where thirty adults and children were found living together.

Cops raided the home in Dagenham, east London, and discovered those inside were staying there illegally.

The property included an unlicensed shed in the back garden where a man and woman were living.

Pictures show mattresses on the floor with no carpets and electric heaters.
