The demand for help at Hope for the Hungry, which provides hot food and drink to those in need, has increased since opening in 2016, volunteers have said.

Now, many who use the service have called on the Government to do more to help to get people out of poverty, according to the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

John Johnson was one of many who felt politicians were oblivious to the true hardship.

"This shouldn’t be Hope for the Hungry's job," said John.

"We don’t see political people in this area. They only come round during election time or when there is an event," the 19-year-old said.

Gordan Smith, 42, added: "I think politicians are ignorant to what is going on, as long as they’re alright they’re not bothered."

It found care workers cut short visits and failed to administer medicine, increasing his chances of seizures.

Offering apologies, the council said it "accepted the findings of the report".
