A woman from Grantham who was attacked by serial killer Beverley Allitt has won a long battle to have her benefits reinstated.
Kayley Asher, who was targeted by Allitt in Grantham Hospital in 1991, was awarded damages of £11,500 and later granted £120 a week in disability benefits.
The Department for Work and Pensions cut off those benefits 18 months ago and demanded she repay the money because they believed she had more than £16,000 in savings as a result of the compensation and interest paid on it.
But now the DWP has said Kayley’s benefits will be reinstated.
Her mum Sharon told ITV Calender that the last 18 months 'have been hell' and the family is relieved she will now get benefits reinstated.
Kayley hopes to buy a new CD player to play her One Direction CDs on and book a trip to Butlins with some of the money to celebrate.
"Decisions are based on the information provided. After we received further details about Ms Asher’s circumstances, she was found eligible for Employment and Support Allowance.”
