Inside the tiny London flat being sold for £225,000

Looking for a small, cosy place to live in London? Well, this tiny £225,000, 125sqft flat just might be the place for you.

Business Insider UK took a look inside the compact apartment, which is located in Kensington, London, one of the most expensive places to live in the city.

Renovated by architect Ian Hogarth of Hogarth Architects, the place might be small but it is fitted with all the essential things you’ll need.

While giving Business Insider UK a tour, Ian Hogarth said: “People are having to make do with living in smaller properties. So we have to find ways of making it seem that the properties are larger than they are.”

If £225,000 is out of your price range then you can always rent the flat for around £800 per month.

This Librarian Has Become a First Responder to Opioid Overdoses | World of Hurt | (HBO)

A local resident who collects dozens of used syringes from a park every day. A librarian who routinely revives dying addicts. A former college athlete struggling with addiction.

They’re all the result of widespread opioid addiction that’s become a national emergency. Overdose is now the leading cause of death for Americans under 50 — worse than car crashes or gun violence.

But the epidemic is more than just numbers. And to understand it, you have to go to the communities it’s tearing apart.
