(London Daily Mail) A Somali family living on benefits has moved into a luxury £2million townhouse just a stone’s throw from where ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair used to live, it was revealed today.

The council-owned property Georgian townhouse, underwent £100,000 worth of renovations in 2011, including creating two new bedrooms.

The occupants of the house, a Somali family, on housing benefit and income support told The Sun: ‘We are from Somalia. I don’t know how we got the house. We were lucky.’
