‘Britain’s chernobyl’ - Man refuses to leave derelict estate despite it being earmarked for demolition

One of the last few remaining residents of a derelict estate dubbed ‘Britain’s Chernobyl” says he won’t leave - despite it being earmarked for demolition.
Marshal Craig, 70, still lives in Clune Park, which has been virtually empty for years and looks like something from a post-apocalyptic film.
Built in 1905 it is made up of 430 flats in rotting tenement buildings as well as a rundown church - all covered in graffiti and litter.
It was abandoned in 1997 and is now a ghost town and the target of arson attacks with some of the cheapest properties in Britain - in 2020 one flat sold for 6K.
