RIP Jaqueline, Via the Daily Mirror:
A former nurse who was unable to work killed herself after her disability benefits were stopped.
The family of Jacqueline Harris has slammed the government’s assessment of the 53-year-old, who was partially sighted, required walking sticks, had a bad back and was in constant pain due to arthritis in her neck.
Despite this, the widow’s benefits were cut in January after a ruling said she was fit to work.
Jacqueline lost her appeal against the decision.
On November 2 she died from a suspected overdose – 13 days before her second appeal was to be heard.
