A man says he blames the Government for the death of his partner who slipped into a diabetic coma after her benefits were stopped.

Amy Driver, 27, was given a four-week sanction after she missed one appointment at the Job Centre due to a hospital appointment, Clifford Watson claims.

Clifford, who cannot work due to a disability, said the halt in their income meant she couldn't afford to eat properly – which triggered the low blood sugar attack.

When they complained Job Centre staff told her to go to a food bank, he alleges.

Not having enough food to provide glucose for the body can cause dangerously low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia) which can lead to a diabetic coma, according to The Mayo Clinic.

Clifford, who had been with Amy for eight years, told i: "Amy's diabetes made her extremely unwell. We had no food in the house at the time. She was told to go to a food bank – we called one and they said they didn't have suitable food for diabetics.

"She was literally killed by the Government."

The 37-year-old, who says he had to learn to walk again after being stabbed two years ago, said his local council then "kicked me out on the streets" because the tenancy on the home they lived in was under Amy's name.

Paperwork 'mess up'

a couple of people posing for the camera © Provided by Johnston Publishing Ltd Amy was initially classed as being sick enough to be placed in the Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) 'support group', which means the claimant is paid indefinitely and doesn't have to take part in work-related activities.

But her problems began in 2016 when their local job centre lost her paperwork, according to Clifford.

"After her claim was messed up she was then having to attend classes aimed at getting her into work. She would go to the Job Centre and vomit. We kept trying to tell them that she really wasn't well but no-one would listen."

Clifford said the diabetes had caused Amy's eyesight and hearing to deteriorate and she had been discovered by himself and family members lying on the floor unconscious many times.

"She would sleep and sleep – I had to make sure I was with her every four hours to make sure she had her insulin injections. She would just sleep through her alarms."

Clifford says her money was stopped multiple times over the last two years and in May 2017  she was sanctioned again despite showing documentation of the medical appointment she attended.

"We showed the evidence that she had a 94 per cent attendance rate and she was told she would get her money the next day but that didn't happen. Next thing we're told is that she had a four-week sanction and no-one could explain why."

On the streets

Clifford said last month he was evicted from their flat in Hoxton, east London, by Hackney Council.

"The council have taken my home away from me as it was in Amy's name. I fought them to get a tenancy for the last 14 months but they kicked me out on the streets. I slept on park benches.
