But now the year-old says she can barely afford food and feels like a prisoner in her Cambridge flat after having her benefits cut by the Department of Work and Pensions DWP. Sally says she has been forced into debt to buy basics like bread and milk.

I could manage with that. It would still be tough but a better quality of life. Warren Gunn The DWP said all of its decisions are made following a collation of information from multiple sources.
