An elderly woman committed suicide after the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) wrongfully stopped her pension payments, according tomedia reportspublished earlier this year (2019).
Joy Worrall, 81, plunged to her death when she jumped into a quarry near to her home in Rhes-y-Cae, Flintshire, in 2018.
Mrs Worral was forced to rely on £5,000 in personal savings and died with just £5 in her bank account when she took her own life. She was ultimately left with with just £5 to live on but was reportedly “too proud” to inform family members about her money troubles.
Her body was discovered at the bottom of a 40-foot face of the Rhes-y-Cae quarry, Wales, in November 2018.
