%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%Firefighters have spoken out about the "tragedy" of vulnerable people living in factories and outbuildings - or beds in sheds - and how they are at far greater risk of fire.

Statistics show that over the last five years there have been 438 fires in London involving buildings that should not have been occupied as a place to live, resulting in 13 fire deaths and 69 serious injuries, London Fire Brigade said.
