Starving to death in the 6th largest economy in the world

The medical cause of death was recorded as starvation.

Assistant coroner Dr Elizabeth Didcock said: "The sudden loss of all income, and the threat of eviction that followed from it, will have caused huge distress and worry, and significant financial hardship.

"It is likely that this loss of income, and housing, were the final and devastating stressors, that had a significant effect on his mental health.

"The safety net that should surround vulnerable people like Errol in our society had holes within it."

What are we if we cannot take care of our most vulnerable. He was 4 1/2 stone when he died. And of course according to the DWP it has nothing to do with them... good grief.
