I use a wheelchair, why cant I find a disabled-friendly flat?

Finding accessible housing in London that allows me to live independently has proved impossible

Everyone knows its tough to find a place to live in London, and thats without a disability. I recently graduated from university with a degree in social work and, like many young graduates, would love to live in London to increase my chances of getting a job and because most of my friends live there. It has, however, been a struggle to find accessible, affordable accommodation to rent with my able-bodied friends.

How many people are killed by lightning?
Venice beach death was 15th in the US this year but toll dropped from 35 at same time in 2013; bolts kill five in the UK each year

The US national weather service confirmed that at least four lightning strikes hit the area about 2.20pm, causing two small fires and downing power lines.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), it was the 15th death by lightning strike in the US this year. However, it represents a steady decrease year-on-year, possibly due to the fall in the numbers of people working outdoors and improvements in health and safety. In 2006, the overall number for the year was 48 and stood at 35 by this time in July.
