21 Newham – Stephen Armstrong / by Rick Pearson

In 2018 Britain, two thirds of families living in poverty are in work and nearly a million people work zero-hours contracts. In his new book, The New Poverty, Stephen Armstrong tells the stories of the most vulnerable in British society – and how we could, and should, be doing more to help them. All this and more en route to the Beckton Alps, a toxic spoil heap that also happens to be the highest point in the borough of Newham.
