DWP asks 7/7 survivor who lost both legs to prove he is entitled to disability benefits

36-year-old Dan Biddle was next to one of the suicide bombers that killed himself and six others on a Tube train on July 7, 2005

A 7/7 survivor who lost both legs, his eye and his spleen in the terror attack has been asked to prove that he is still entitled to claim benefits.

Dan Biddle, 36, has been describe as the worst injured survivor of the London attacks , which killed 52 on July 7, 2005.

But despite going through such an ordeal, wheelchair-bound Dan, who now suffers from post-traumatic stress, has been asked by the Department for Work and Pensions to fill out a form asking him how long he can stand and how many steps he can take.

Dan, of Abergavenny, South Wales, told The Sun: “It is a betrayal. To be asked questions like ‘How long can you stand for?’ How insensitive is that? If this isn’t re-affirming how bad my life is going to be because of my injuries, I don’t know what is.”

Dan, a former project manager, was awarded £118,000 following the attacks, but had to return to his work in a new role after two months as he needed the money.

However he left after a year because he found it too upsetting to be constantly reminded of the work he once did as a fit, healthy young man.

He then retrained and began his own consultancy firm, but he was forced to stop work in 2014 and began claiming Employment and Support Allowance after his stress disorder meant he could not work for long stretches.

Now though Dan has been sent a letter from Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) saying the money will stop if he does not fill in the form.

Dan said: “I got £118,000 for what happened. Does anyone think that’s adequate?

“The Government are trying to save money on the welfare system — which I do think is a good idea — but let’s have a little bit of common sense.

“My wheelchair is held together with clips. I need a new one but cannot afford it. I am in this situation because my Government couldn’t protect me.”

A DWP spokesman said: “It’s important claimants receive benefits they are entitled to. This is why we ask for questionnaires to be completed.”

The News of the World hacking their phones
MI5 lying to them about alleged 7/7 bombers being 'clean skins'
No explanation as to why a former SBS soldier Martin McDaid was training two of the alleged bombers in Leeds
Lady Justice Hallett refusing to allow them to ask questions at the inquest
Lady Justice Hallett refusing to allow them a jury at the inquest
Now the DWP humiliating them too
THIS BULLYING IS UNBELIEVABLE!
