Couple's anger after lifetime of paying off their mortgage is wasted when house value collapsed because council scheme to sell neighbouring homes for £1 turned their street into a 'ghetto'

Liverpool couple's paid off their mortgage to find it's now worth £1

A couple who spent a lifetime paying off their mortgage have said it was a waste of time after a council scheme to sell neighbouring homes for just £1 has turned the street into a 'ghetto'.
