A new cleaning service has been launched to maintain Brent's housing estates, billed as giving neighbours more control over services they pay for.
The smartphone-powered Brent Estate Caretaking Service, delivered by Brent Council, was launched at Windmill Court in Mapesbury Road.

Brent caretakers will use an app to report cleanliness levels on estates, sign a checklist of tasks for each block and submit "before" and "after" pictures for the areas they're responsible for.
The app will also enable managers to engage with staff more frequently and easily.
"We're committed to fulfilling our promise of delivering a more efficient and effective service across all Brent estates and, at the same time, improving the terms and conditions for our caretakers," said Cllr Eleanor Southwood, lead member for housing and welfare reform.
"Residents will notice a difference gradually as changes are made."
