94 year old veterans fight
Published on 4 February 2019
A 94-year-old Normandy veteran from Norfolk says he feels as if he's being "left to die" - after the county council refused to fund a place in a Royal British Legion care home.
Len Mann was just 19 when he fought on D-Day - but now he says he's too frail to live by himself in his Norwich bungalow.
Len can afford half of the fees needed for the 24-hour care he wants in Cromer - but the council won't pay the rest. They say they're working with him to keep him independent and explore his care options.
He wants to spend the end of his life at a Royal British Legion care home - Halsey House in Cromer - but Norfolk County Council has so far refused to contribute to the fees.
It's not just the RBL who have vast wealth & resources and could easily help Len. Once again we see genuine cases where veterans, in their hour of need, are being let down by the very charities that are generously funded by continuous public & government donations!
