"The best time in the flats was in the 1980s. We'll never get those days back.

"We had hot water and heating 24/7. You could take your jeans out ringing wet and put them on the floor and they'd be dry in an hour.

"In the 80s, a lot of single mothers lived there, so there was a bit of a fatherless society here for a while. But the women were great.

"Once the flats were torn down, everyone drifted apart. The place lost its soul.

"They took my flat down eight years ago and I still miss it."
