A distraught mother was forced to leave her home when her 13-year-old son was exploited by drug dealers - and came home with a Kinder egg full of crack cocaine and heroin.
The mum, who will remain anonymous, was moved out of Quantock flats, Southend, by police for safety reasons. But, she says Southend Council are now evicting her from her new flat and will only house her back at the tower block.How heartless! How cruel! How...
The pair were moved out of the tower block by police and were placed in a South Essex Homes property temporarily.
However, due to several complaints which the mother says are “malicious”, they have now been asked to leave and told the only property available in Southend is back at Quantock.Did you think even a worthless chip-wrapper like the 'Echo' wouldn't get a quote to disprove your sob-story?
Councillor Tony Cox, said: “We have been working very closely with South Essex Homes and Essex Police to provide support to this resident, initially finding a temporary solution very quickly to ensure the resident was safe.
“This option was always a temporary measure, and this was explained clearly at the time and a number of times since.
"It is an adapted property for disabled residents, and that property must remain available for residents on the housing register who require an adapted property. In addition to this, a number of complaints have been received about anti-social behaviour being carried out at the property.
“The advice given to this resident from all agencies involved is to move out of the area, and we have offered various streams of support to enable this to happen. Unfortunately this has been refused and so we are left with no other option than to ask them to move back to their previous property.”Back to the Quantocks you go, love!
