A Swansea family of four has been forced to share a single room, sleeping on mattresses on the floor, due to severe mould infestation in their home. 

Zoe Godrich, the mother of three, describes the state of her home as "looking like a squat," with mould reappearing on the walls every two weeks despite her relentless efforts to remove the mould.
