Disabled people are having to sleep in their wheelchairs and wait 14 hours to use the toilet due to savage cuts to social care, a report warns.
Council social care budgets have been slashed by almost £5billion since 2010.
Now the most vulnerable in society are suffering the “horrific consequences” of the Tory cuts, according to charity Scope.
It said disabled people were now being forced to sleep fully-clothed in their wheelchairs because no one is visiting their home to help them into bed.
Shockingly, some have to wait 14 hours to go to the toilet while others are left unable to eat.
