D.O.B. Details to follow…
Nygel Firminger, was found dead after he was evicted by his housing association in 2012. Nygel had previously been sanctioned by Kilburn jobcentre and pursued by the Department for Work and Pensions.
He eventually gained full time employment, but his employer refused to pay him for three months. He took out loans in order to pay for the things he needed.
After this, he lost his job and went onto Jobseeker’s allowance, while on medication. Instead of rent, he was paying back the loans each month. He was eventually evicted by his housing association and on the day of his eviction, he was not allowed time to pick up his medication and was found dead in the flat.
Nygel Firminger happened to fall through the cracks of society. A tragedy like this could happen to anybody with the cuts of austerity.
