Mrs O moved to Bolton in 2007 and had two years of trouble with vandals and no help from the police. With the advice she obtained from the Citizens Advice Bureau it was possible for her to have a camera installed and the vandals evicted, she says:
"over the years I received invaluable advise from the Citizens Advice Bureau on various issues. Now, being a disabled, housebound pensioner unable to afford to consult a solicitor, life would be very difficult. Many unemployed citizens would suffer as benefits scarely cover food and essentials. I object very strongly to these cuts."
