A pensioner in Kent died of hypothermia after local authorities failed to provide adequate heating in her council house.
Susan Baines lived in a property now managed by East Kent Housing (EKH) – which looks after council homes across the district – for 25 years.
But in January, she was found hypothermic by paramedics – six months after EKH ruled electric storage heaters in the property needed replacing with radiators.
The 70-year-old – who had a number of other health issues – suffered multiple organ failure and died shortly after being taken to hospital, the Mirror reported.
Her son believes “the lack of heating was the straw that broke the camel’s back”.
He said: “The heaters didn’t work.
“They were old, and the dials had snapped off. There was one working upstairs, just about, but it wouldn’t heat the house,” he said.
“In about October when it started getting cold, housing officers gave her two little fan heaters.
“They weren’t enough to make the house properly warm.
“She didn’t use them, because they weren’t allowed to be unsupervised and she was too disabled to get to them quickly if they set fire to something.
“It’s the night time when it got really cold, and leaving them on while she slept would have been a fire hazard.”
