The mother of Jodey Whiting, a housebound disabled woman who killed herself after her benefits were cut, has won an appeal for a fresh inquest into her daughter’s death.
Whiting, 42, from Stockton-on-Tees, died in February 2017 about two weeks after her disability benefit was stopped when she did not attend a work capability assessment.
Her mother, Joy Dove, challenged a ruling given in June last year by two high court judges who refused to order a new inquest to investigate the role of the Department for Work and Pensions in the death.
