What’s the betting that Labour-run Luton Borough Council gets the blame for this, when the housing crisis has nothing to do with it and everything to do with the Conservative Government in Westminster?
A disabled couple and their four year-old daughter are stranded in a motorway service station hotel because a council cannot find another home for them.
Janet Paddison, 23, and her partner and young girl were made homeless when their landlord decided to sell their rented property.
They looked for homes in the private sector but said no one was prepared to accept her assistance dog or housing benefit supplements.
She suffers from fibromyalgia, a condition which leaves her in constant pain and her partner Rhys, 21, has Ehlers-Danlos Sydrome which affects the skin and joints.
Luton Borough Council said their “severe housing shortage” is down to landlords demanding rents higher than can be covered by Housing Benefits and competition from London authorities.
