The keys to the first £1 home sold in Liverpool have been handed over to its new owners.

Liverpool Council offered the chance to buy 20 vacant houses for the small sum if the new owners pledged to refurbish them and stay for at least five years.

The property, on Cairns Street, Granby, was handed over to Jayalal Madde by Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson.

More than 1,000 people applied for the scheme and 10 applicants have so far been successful.

Married father-of-two Mr Madde, 48, said he had raised money through a credit union to carry out refurbishments.

A good way to avoid the area to convert into a slum... which would be by far more expensive to rebuild.

its a load of rubbish, i'd demolish the lot, they are in a crappy part of the city which has all the problems of a inner city migrant area. the whole process of allocating the properties was and is a disgrace. ask yourself this how can a person whose only lived here for only a short time - more or less get a house for nothing. there are, and is more deserving people who met the criteria but got nothing. good luck to Mr Madde and his family. its not their fault the allocation process was shrouded in mystery.
