The Sundaysun report on a couple living in shed.
A COUPLE who lost their home after failing to keep up mortgage payments are living in a shed.
Debbie Galloway, 31, and husband Philip, 42, are sleeping in the hut at a relativeâ€™s allotment.
They claim accommodation offered by Hartlepool Council is run-down.
Their six children are living with relatives.
The pair began sleeping rough after complaining about conditions in several properties offered to them.
They had lived in a three-bedroomed semi-detached home for 13 years.
Debbie said: â€œAll of them have been run down and in a bad way.
â€œThe allotment is cleaner than half the houses they have sent us to. Itâ€™s disgusting. We have got six kids. They are all separated and itâ€™s not fair on them.â€
A council spokesman said â€œGiven that she has been classified as intentionally homeless, social housing is not a realistic option.
