An estate agent has been forced to remove a listing of a flat, after it received “threatening phone calls” from the public after the tiny £737/month property went viral online.

The small one bedroom flat on Kember Street, boasting intimate dining and plenty of opportunities for breakfast in bed, has just metres between its ‘kitchen’ and ‘bedroom’.

Rightmove put the property on its website yesterday, but within 24 hours it had been taken down.

An employee at the estate agents, Relocate Me, on Kings Cross Road said that had received “threatening” phone calls with people “shouting and swearing” at them, so deemed it best to remove the property from the website.

The unnamed employee added that he believed the company had been unfairly treated by the media, and that the pictures online “didn’t do justice” to the flat which is “good value for money”.
