A deprived London borough has asked its residents to identify the worst local eyesores as a first step to transforming a bleak urban landscape.

Newham LBC has run newspaper advertisements with pictures of its 'dirty dozen', described by leader Robin Wales as 'blots on the landscape'.

He said: 'We have spent the past three months finalising what we think are Newham's 12 worst eyesores, its dirty dozen, but we want to give residents the chance to have their say and put forward any site they think is even worse.'

The council admits to ownership of almost half the sites and says it must 'get its house in order'. The owners of private properties on the hitlist will be pressured to follow Newham's lead.
