Couple ‘sent home to die’ in Covid hot-spot

COUPLE forced to leave their caravan in Wales fear they are being ‘sent home to die’ in a Covid hot-spot.

Susan and Ken Dinn had been shielding in their caravan in a holiday park in Caernarfon, North Wales, since July. With the implementation of a firebreak in Wales, the holiday park closed and the couple was forced to return to their Knowsley home, a borough which has recently seen the highest rates of coronavirus in England.

Ken, who suffers from chronic asthma, and Susan, who has arthritis, fear they have been ‘sent home to die’.

“The Covid rates in Knowsley are very high, which is why we were staying out of the way, and didn’t want to come back,” Susan told the Echo. “We feel like the government has sent us home to die, it’s a possibility, my husband is in the high-risk group,” she added.

The Dinns said they didn’t blame the holiday park, which was forced to close under current restrictions.

A Welsh Government spokesperson said: “Unless they are using the accommodation as their main residence because they do not have an alternative, anyone staying in a holiday park will be required to leave during the two-week fire breaker.”
