Student Forced To Borrow Money For Her Father’s Funeral

A student says a flaw in the law means she had to borrow money on a credit card to pay for her father’s funeral.
Cerys Evans discovered she was not eligible for a special benefit to help cover the costs when her father died unexpectedly.
Lyndon Evans was just 51 when he was admitted to hospital in Cardiff in May with sepsis and pneumonia.
UK officials said Funeral Expenses Payments were only available to those on “qualifying benefits”.
