The Guardian's society section (p6) runs a feature on the attempts by local authorities to avoid creating concentrations of disadvantaged people, while dealing with being the 'landlords of last resort'.

The piece looks at the way councils deal with complaints from other residents about disruptive tenants and at the problems facing the Social Exclusion Unit.

'Better local authorities have set up join working arrangements between police, probation and housing services to ameliorate these problems. But this only exposes the absence of national guidelines to prevent one council dumping on another, and of secure units for people too dangerous to be assimilated into normal neighbourhoods.'
