Exclusive: ‘I can’t sleep at night as I feel them crawl across my face.’


A kitchen porter living on Squirrels Heath Road, is angry that he has been living in appalling conditions due to an infestation of creepy crawlies in his room.

For most of us, just reading this story will make us want to itch and freak out, yet Sylvio has been living alongside termites, spiders, flying ants and other insects that have plagued his room for weeks.

He told the Havering Daily:

“I have contacted the council three times, I can’t live like this. I can’t sleep at night as I feel them crawl all over me, including on my face. I need to sleep to be able to work well and I haven’t been able to do this.

“I have many bites on me, and at night I feel them crawl on my body, I can’t live like this. It is having a negative impact on my job and it is affecting my mental health.”

The insects can be seen across many different parts of the Sylvio’s room including the light switches where the termites are literally crawling all over it.

A pest control officer has visited Sylvio’s room and has dealt with the infestation.

Sylvio finished: “I have been told apparently the insects had hatched eggs that had reproduced and were everywhere.

“Hopefully this is the end now and I can have my room back and be able to sleep at night without stressing as I have been.”

The bug infested room.
The creepy crawlies.

    Strange, no mention of this property being privately rented or council rented. Why not, because it would be just another confirmation of the disgusting conditions the council are letting their tenants live in. If it had been privately rented, the council would have been all over it, and the Havering Daily would have given it more coverage. Just out of curiosity, will the Havering Daily inform us as to whether it is privately rented, or council rented? NO, because it would further corroborate the abject failures that those in charge of the council allow to continue.
