A DISTRAUGHT disabled Kidderminster woman has had her benefits slashed despite developing another illness that has affected her further.
Hayley Wigley, from Blakedown, had been in receipt of the enhanced rate Personal Independence Payment (PIP) which gave her £411.40 per month due to her suffering a string of conditions including bipolar disorder, chronic back pain and asthma.
And earlier this year, the 44-year-old discovered she had contracted fibromyalgia disease, which causes pain throughout her body, memory loss and sleeping problems, and informed the Department of Work of Pensions of this.
But she was left astonished when she received a letter last month informing her that her PIP allowance would be reduced to the standard rate of just £55.10 per week.
