Woman evicted for hoarding fruit and vegetables

A Willand woman's been evicted from her Mid Devon District Council home for leaving the place over-ridden with rotting food.

The garden was also in a mess and an exit door was blocked.

The council says keeping cut-price fruit and vegetables and leaving them to rot is called wet-hoarding.

Its housing officers worked with the tenant for two years but she didn't accept that her hoarding was a health hazard to the family or the neighbours, and eviction was the only option.
