The homeless family who had been living in the Council’s own car park after they being allegedly told to ‘get rid’ of their pet dogs have now been found suitable accommodation.
Within hours of Eastleigh News publishing the details of their plight both the BBC and The Daily Echo descended on the civic offices car park prompting the council to find suitable emergency accommodation.
Tonight, Mum Amanda Denton, her daughter and pets Ruby and Missy are in nice warm holiday chalet accommodation in Botley.
“We are delighted to be able to get a bath last”
Amanda told Eastleigh News – adding that she had not been told how long she would be able to stay at the chalet but expected it would be a month at least.
The self employed lorry driver said she was grateful to Eastleigh News and to Eastleigh Independent councillor Andy Moore for their help.
“Thank you for everything you done cos without you I might still be in the car park.”
Ms Denton claimed she had been evicted after she lost her job working for Eastleigh Borough Council ‘s ‘streetscene’.
