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.”

More than 27,000 people saw part of the poppies sculpture from the Tower of London at Lincoln Castle over the bank holiday weekend.
'Wave' remembers soldiers who lost their lives in the Great War. It was installed at the Castle last week and features 5,500 ceramic poppies.
Over the Bank Holiday weekend 27,797 people visited the castle to see the sculpture, which can be seen for free in the grounds.
"We always knew people would travel from far and wide to see the sculpture, but the number of visitors over the weekend has far exceeded our expectations.
"I'm delighted so many people have taken the opportunity to experience this wonderful piece of art – it makes all the hard work worthwhile.
"I'm sure many more people will follow over the coming months."

The new £1 million visitor centre at Gibraltar Point officially opens today.
It replaces the old centre which was damaged during the storm surge in December 2013. The new building is raised on stilts to protect it from any future flooding.
"This was an opportunity to make Gibraltar Point even more attractive to visitors - an opportunity that we have fully taken advantage of.
"The new visitor centre has been designed to make the most of the reserve's stunning views, with expansive windows facing the dunes and sea, and a rooftop viewing deck.
"This is just one of a series of investments on the coast, which we are confident will help attract new visitors to the area.
"Combined with the new outdoor theatre space and North Sea Observatory at Chapel St Leonards, this improved attraction will help extend the traditional tourist season on the coast, providing a significant boost to the local economy."
Two puppies will soon be joining Northamptonshire and Lincolnshire Police forces this week.
They are yet to be named and the forces are asking the public to help name them.
