Leicestershire woman, 83, lives in daughter's cramped bungalow

Friends of an 83-year-old Leicestershire woman who has to sleep on her disabled daughter's sofa say she lives in "disgraceful" conditions.

Audrey Pearce has lived with her daughter in Thringstone for the past 10 months but is struggling to cope with the cramped conditions in the one-bedroom bungalow.

North West Leicestershire Council officials said they were treating her case as a "high priority."
