Figures obtained by ITV News have revealed that around 100 disability claimants are losing their car benefit every week.
According to Motability, who lease cars and powered wheelchairs to the disabled, 3,000 out of 8,000 of their customers who have so far been reassessed have lost their eligibility for the scheme and have therefore had to give up their vehicles.
And this could rise to more than 100,000.
Those affected have been left angry, isolated and confused. They feel nothing about their condition has improved – but the way they are being treated has worsened.
The charity Motability says it has seen drivers having to leave their car leasing scheme as their Disability Living Allowance (DLA) is replaced with a new benefit called Personal Independent Payment (PIP).
