A tiny, 11 sq m studio flat being sold for £134,000 has been mocked for being no bigger than a mop cupboard.

The price tag on the small bedsit is the same as nearly TEN houses in the UK’s cheapest town to live.

It has a skinny bed up against one wall with a desk and a computer in case the buyer wants to work from home.

But they would also have to eat there as there is no other table.

There is a kitchen with a sink, cooker, hob and washing machine.

A shower, toilet and basin are in the only separate room in the flat.

But the flat in Leyton, east London is being marketed as being “near good schools” despite it clearly not being a family home.

Homehunter Dora Somerville joked: “Not sure why you would need to know that this is near good schools.

“Unless you are a janitor and you are buying this to store your mops.”

Nick Jackson added: “In case someone wants to buy it in order to get in a catchment area.

“But definitely not to live in.”

Alex Micu quipped: “Or you’re a five-year-old and live by yourself.”

Another – named Samuel – said: “Great, I can now raise my wonderful family here.”

On top of that there are over £1,000 a year fees to stump up.

There is a £759 annual service charge, plus £350 ground rent.

It is being sold by Bairstow Eves and advertised on Rightmove.
