The Park Hill council estate in Sheffield, loved and loathed in equal measure, is being recommended for listing by English Heritage, the Daily Mail reports (p28).

The estate - designed by council architects in the 1950s and the first in Britain to feature 'streets in the sky' - is described by an EH spokesman as 'a magnificent structure. It has been likened to a medieval fortress, a glittering cliff-face of windows'.

But many residents complain of vandalism, break-ins and drug-related crime. One tells the paper: 'The place is like a rabbit warren. I'd pull it down'.
