A mum-of-one suffering from severe mental illness died without any money after her disability benefits dried up.
Annette Francis, 30, was found dead at her Garston home two weeks ago, leaving behind 11-year-old son Kieron. Her distraught family say Annette was let down by the authorities in the months leading up to her death.
At the time of the tragedy, Annette had spent six months without receiving a single penny in benefits, her aunt Ann Sorotos claims.
She told the ECHO: “Annette was penniless because she had no money coming in from the benefits people. I’m disgusted with them and think Annette was really badly let down.”
Annette suffered from a mental illness similar to bipolar disorder and was unable to hold down a job.
