A woman who has been offered a six bedroom house for her 11 children went into hiding today following a media storm, after it was revealed that Tewkesbury Council is building a new home for her family.
Heather Frost from Innsworth near Gloucester is quoted in the Sun newspaper saying she would demand an even bigger home if she doesn't like the one being built for her. But friends said today she never asked for a six bedroomed house; it was offered because her current accommodation is temporary.
Heather and her family currently live in two semi-detached houses knocked together to form one large house. Verna Green, Director of Communities for Tewkesbury Borough Council says that the new house, which is being built as part of a social housing development, represents good value.
