A young mother-of-four who gave up her Clerkenwell council flat while heavily pregnant to care for her cancer-stricken grandmother is still fighting the council over plans to evict her.
Danni Morris, 24, moved back to her family home in Canonbury in August 2017, but shortly after her nan died - 24 hours before Danni handed over the keys to her old flat.
Her application to succeed the tenancy was rejected because she hadn't lived there for a year and she was told to leave. She's been fighting the decision since, and has an appeal hearing.
Bank worker Danni, who recently had twins, said: "I'm really stressed about where I'm going to live if they evict me."
She has been offered two viewings for properties. The first she missed out on and the second wasn't suitable.
