Landlord Law Blog Roundup from 20 January

BenBen Reeve Lewis, after several years of being filmed, has finally emerged from the cutting room floor, and you can see him (not for very long mind you but at least he is there) in a very interesting Inside Out London program on energy.

The first part of the program is about energy theft – this is the bit where Ben appears.  We look at raids on people who have stolen gas and electricity, sometimes in the most dangerous manner.

Indeed we are also shown some houses which have been completely destroyed by explosions.

The second part of the program is the optimistic part, and we see some local energy generation projects where waste heat is going to heat local housing estates.

Its well worth a watch, even though Ben is not wearing his Hawaiian shirt.  Still you can see that phenomenon above.  The program is available for a couple more days on iplayer.

But what happened on the blog?
