A FENLAND District Council survey shows that there around 600 properties in the Wisbech area which are 'Houses in Multiple Occupancy' (HMOs).
These HMOs are mainly occupied by migrant workers who have come to work in Wisbech mostly from Poland.
However, over the last year, the value of the British pound in relation to Poland's currency, the Zloty, has fallen by around 45per cent.
This means that it is now a lot less worthwhile for migrant workers from Poland to continue working in Britain when their earnings are converted into the Zloty.
As the British pound continues to fall in relation to Poland's Zloty, it is likely that most Polish migrant workers living in Wisbech will return home to Poland.
When the 600 former HMOs are all suddenly put on the market, Wisbech will become a ghost town.
