Bedroom Tax ‘tormented cancer victim to death’ when she was forced to move home despite illness – Mirror Online


Bedroom Tax ‘tormented cancer victim to death’ when she was forced to move home despite illness – Mirror Online.

News that the end of the despised Bedroom Tax was in sight on Friday came too late for cancer victim Jan Mandeville, reports the Sunday People.

The 52-year-old grandmother’s funeral was on Thursday.

And, according to her family, her death was hastened when she was forced to move home despite her fatal illness.

Jan – who also suffered depression and fibromyalgia, making even basic movement painful – could not afford the extra rent on the two-bed flat she loved so she had to switch to a smaller property that she hated.

Her online diary reveals how she was tormented by the Bedroom Tax as well as her anger at the politicians she blamed.

Last year, Jan told how she fell into rent arrears following the housing benefit reforms which forced her to move home that year.
