Allex Wood, a father of seven who has lived in The Belle area for almost ten years, said that he was there because he could not afford to rent elsewhere. Everyone is entitled to “a corner of the earth to call their own”, he said.
“Yes, they’re people who like to live free but we are willing to pay,” he said.
