Hertsmere BC has offered to pay compensation to 10 tenants who received what the ombudsman described as 'harsh and unreasonable' treatment at the hands of the council's housing service.

The ombudsman found Hertsmere offered tenants poorer standards of housing if they were homeless, and from 1990 only gave priority on waiting lists to people in a 'life or death situation'.

The tenants have been offered nearly £30,000 compensation.
