A resident is ‘inconsolable and scared’ on sixth night without power
A resident whose home lost power after Storm Arwen has described feeling “inconsolable and scared” as she faces a sixth night without central heating.
Jessica May Teasdale, 35, whose home in Stanley, County Durham, lost power on Friday evening, described the experience as a “nightmare” and said her region has been “abandoned” by the Government.
Ms Teasdale, an architectural ironmonger, told the PA news agency: “It’s a nightmare… we’re inconsolable and scared, are we going to get even more ill to the point where it’s pneumonia?
“I was in tears this morning, just thinking, ‘is it ever going to end?’
“Our health is deteriorating each day because we’re constantly in the cold.
“It feels like we’ve been forgotten about. I mean, not to be sad but I don’t even want to wake up tomorrow.”
