The Fraud Capital of Britain

Thamesmead was one of the most exciting new towns to be built in the 1960s, intended as a vibrant, riverside community of 60,000 people in south east London. Forty years on, the area is perhaps best known as a notorious hub of fraud, dubbed 'Little Lagos' because of its association with west African criminal gangs.

Phil Kemp investigates how this reputation has stuck. He talks to a former fraudster and meets residents fighting to turn the community around and shake off its crime-ridden image.

I know Thamesmead has been the source of some debate and not a little mirth on this site so this should be interesting.

It's also got one of the UK's few hazardous waste landfills.

The criminals in the City are the ones to go after - this lot are only taking advantage of the situation created by the banksters and their friends the politicos.

Instead they're getting more bonuses.
