I've got to pay £100 extra per month
8:20am Friday 22nd March 2013 in Local
A ‘BEDROOM tax’ victim who suffers from kidney failure says he has been left with no choice but to fork out an extra £100 a month for his spare rooms used for his dialysis equipment.
The Shuttle reported last month that Bryan Tudor, 60, who lives ina three-bedroom house with his carer wife Elaine, 58, was told to pay the extra cash or move to a one bedroom bungalow, with no room for his dialysis machine.
He said he had not received any help, despite his unusual circumstances, since The Shuttle told of his plight.
The couple have to sleep in separate rooms, as Mr Tudor’s bedroom has the dialysis machine in it, while the spare room houses all the supplies required for the treatment.
Mr Tudor said: “We’re still in the same position. As it stands I will have to pay the extra money as there won’t be enough space in a one-bedroom bungalow. I’m annoyed really.”
He added the extra £100 a month would put financial strain on him and his wife as they could not afford it.
