Illegally demolished Victorian-era houses in an east London conservation area must be rebuilt "brick by brick", a council has ordered.
The properties in East Ferry Road, near Canary Wharf, survived heavy bombing during the Blitz but were knocked down without planning permission in 2016 -
Tower Hamlets Council said the owners were unable to give a credible explanation for the demolition.
The owners are appealing the council's decision.
Under the current enforcement orders the owners have 18 months to rebuild the properties.
