A 16th century building which is thought to be the oldest council house in England has become vacant - and Lincoln city council is being besieged by prospective tenants, the Daily Telegraph reports (p8).

The three-bedroom, Tudor building is listed, and has a number of special features. Its rent: just£36 a week.

But the council, which has 2,000 people on its waiting list, will not grant the tenancy on a 'Buggins's turn' basis. Housing director John Bibby said: 'The tenant will have to be right - someone who will respect it'.
