A FAMILY forced to live in appalling conditions by Eastbourne Borough Council are on the move.

Their home in Shinewater was shocking with mould everywhere.

The council refused to address their plight until we – and then Caroline Ansell MP – stepped in.

Now they have been told they will be on the move to a new home within the next month.

The family said: “We’ve had a phone call from the council this morning and we will be moving into our new home in the next three to four weeks.

“Thank you so much for all your help. You are amazing.”

We are delighted.

It should never have come to this and the council should have listened to the family.
