Asperger sufferer starved to death after benefits stopped

Adrian Holliday

A 44-year-old disabled man living in David Cameron's Oxford constituency starved to death after his benefits were cut. Although Mark Wood was declared fit to earn a living by controversial agency Atos - the French company which carries out DWP benefit assessments - he weighed 5st 8lbs when his body was discovered. Wood had lost his housing and employment benefit; he was left with just a £40 disability grant to survive on. %VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
