Homeless boy, 16, forced to live in a TENT for nine months because of council bungles...But they have no Problem Placing Non UK Citizens in Mansions

Failures by two councils led to a homeless 16-year-old boy being forced to spend nine months living in a tent and having to sell his belongings to survive, an inquiry has found.

Kent County Council and Dover District Council have been criticised by local government ombudsman Anne Seex for their 'inexcusable' handling of the teenager’s case.

She said the failures of the authorities could have 'tipped him into a spiral of drug use and crime' and caused him physical and mental ill-health.

The ombudsman has now recommended that the councils apologise in writing to the boy, whose identity is not being disclosed, and each pay him £5,500.

The investigation found he spent nine months sleeping in a tent, sometimes in snowy conditions, in various parts of rural Kent, or on friends’ sofas.

He sold or gave away most of his possessions to pay friends who let him stay. Read More
