|"Friendly" Rosina Coleman, 85, Bludgeoned To Death In Her Home|
Had Rosina previously given work to these people ? Had she previously let them into her home ? Was Rosina regarded as a "soft touch" by Essex van man looking for easy money ? It wouldn't be the first time in Romford that a pensioner had been pestered by cold-callers. We recently heard of a case where three men posing as water company workers were let in by another pensioner victim. They beat her up, took her money and jewellery, the victim is still traumatised today.
The Havering Witness has long been concerned about pensioner safety in Romford given the huge political bias in favour of business from the self-employed culture that dominates the area. The solution, as always, will come from Public Service - Havering council should run a special property maintenance service for vulnerable people but in tory-controlled Thatcherite Havering it is highly unlikely that such a policy would be implemented.
Thousands of TORY-SUPPORTING DOOR KNOCKING trades people would oppose a council-run property maintenance service for vulnerable people.
