The story about an 82-year-old woman who committed suicide after her benefits payments were stopped is harrowing.

The Government has apologised for what it called 'a clerical error'.

This is little comfort for the poor woman's family.

It is utterly shameful - this type of error is appalling and unacceptable.

This lady had just £5 in her account and was too proud to tell her family. How on earth can this type of horrendous and heart-breaking event happen in our society?

This cannot and MUST not ever happen again!
