Owing to a degenerative lung condition, Larry had dropped from ten to seven stone, and had trouble breathing and walking. At his Work Capability Assessment, he was awarded zero points. He was told by the job centre that he would be fit to return to work within three months. He noted a number of inaccuracies in the assessment report and decided to appeal, but before three months was up he died from his lung problems. His widow, Sylvia, says, “They could have just got a report from the hospital to see how sick he was. It seemed a pointless exercise. He was so hurt by it. It made him so upset that they thought he was lying, and he wasn’t. I think it added to him just giving up.”
