Peterborough has been included in the country’s top 20 home threat hotspots.

The charity Shelter says tenants in the city are among those most at risk of being evicted.

It blames rising rents, welfare cuts and a chronic shortage of affordable homes.

Below are England’s top 20 home threat hotspots, according to Shelter with the number of renting households put at risk followed by the number of renters put at risk and the number of properties put at risk per rented homes in the last year (the rates of homes being put at risk per rented home have been rounded);
