London pensioner drives to Cheddar Gorge to commit suicide
Malcolm Burge, 66, killed himself at Cheddar Gorge, Somerset, after a change in housing benefits left him £800 in debt.
The retired gardener from London could not meet the demands that Newham Council demanded and became increasingly depressed.
He wrote to the council:
Newham Council sent a total of 10 payment reminders to him from June 2013 to May 2014.
The 66-year-old decided to drive to Cheddar Gorge, Somerset where he set his car on fire.
Teenagers helped tackle the flames but he later died in hospital from his injuries.
