DWP stop disabled girl's benefit

A GIRL with one leg has had her benefits stopped - because officials say she is not disabled enough.

Department of Work and Pensions letter said Olivia's monthly £281 Disability Living Allowance and £26 Mobility Allowance were being cut. A subsidised car her family use for hospital trips is also being axed.

DWP axed the benefits on the basis of a telephone conversation with a teacher.

My comment: This turns on whether DWP validated what they had been told by a teacher before stopping her benefits?
