TENS OF thousands of people are being denied the chance of a home by local authorities, many for no good reason according to new research published today by the housing charity Shelter.

Nearly four times as many people were excluded from local authority housing lists in 1997/8 as in the previous year, with Shelter estimating that across Britain as many as 200,000 households may have been denied a local authority home.
