Homeless Maldon woman threatens to camp on council car park

First published in Local News

A Maldon woman is threatening to camp out on the council car park if she cannot be found accommodation in her home town.

Claire Phillips, who suffers unstable personality disorder and depersonalisation disorder whereby she forgets who she is, is set to become homeless today after a temporary stay at a caravan park.

Mother-of-three Miss Phillips says she is desperate to move back to Maldon and believes a more permanent home would also help her mental health.

Maldon District Council spokesman said: “We do have a very strong track record of preventing homelessness, working with customers and other agencies to find alternate accommodation.

“The council will contact Miss Phillips next week to discuss the matters, and as with all customers, we will endeavour to provide help and advice to help resolve her housing situation.”

I bet if most of us went back to our home towns after having 3 kids they wouldn't be interested in housing us either.

What ever happened to investigative journalism? This is one sided and lacks any context.
I feel the FULL story should be given, why she 'moved' away from Maldon and how she lost her last residence maybe?

And how did she become homeless ?

Do her 3 children live with her and be living in the car park too?
