Blackpool couple say system is unfair after winning their disability benefit battle Ron Lingham, 69 of St Chad’s Road and his wife Susan, 63 had their money slashed last year and have had to wait months for their appeal to be heard. He said: “The whole experience has been appalling. The people who assessed us were said to be medical professionals but they were not doctors. They did not take my wife’s mental illness into account they did not accept evidence from our doctor.

A Blackpool couple have won their battle to get their disability benefit restored but say they have endured a year of hell.
