ALLERGIC TO 21ST CENTURY
25 September 2008
By Web Reporter
A WOMAN allergic to 21st century life is being evicted from the Bishop's Stortford flat she claims is her "safe haven".
Lesley Moylette, who suffers from electrosensitivity, has been given two weeks to leave her home in Windhill after she was taken to court by housing association South Anglia.
Her condition, which sufferers believe is due to electromagnetic fields emitted by electrical appliances, causes symptoms including insomnia and migraines.
However, since moving to her daughter Sam's two-bedroom flat 47-year-old Lesley's health has improved as she believes the property is relatively free from electro-waves. She keeps it free from mod cons such as telephones, computers and TVs.
Three months ago she was served with an eviction notice by East Herts District Council and South Anglia, which claimed she was ineligible to live there because it is rented by Sam.
The Observer was barred by the judge from yesterday's (Wednesday September 24) public hearing at Harlow county court after solicitors representing South Anglia objected.
Lesley tearfully said afterwards: "He said he can't change the law and that they want the building back. All they care about is what the law says, never mind the human costs. I'm utterly devastated and just don't know what to do."
