The Gazette would like to hear from people living in temporary accommodation in Hackney - such as hostels or bed and breakfasts.

Government figures show the number of families without a permanent home in the borough is on the rise.

This is against a backdrop of rising private sector rents and a burgeoning housing crisis in the capital.

Do you have a story to tell? What are conditions like in hostels and B&Bs?
