A woman suffering from Parkinson’s and a brain tumour has been told she will no longer receive a vital benefit because she has been ruled fit enough to work.

Miss Julia Leek, 46, of Fairfield Avenue, Farndon, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s three years ago and says it has become progressively worse.

“It affects my everyday life. It affects my walking. I can’t stand or sit for any length of time and I shiver and shake badly,” she said.
