“It used to travel all the way up the wall and around my bed and I had to move my bed. Sanctuary Housing came out and cleaned that but it didn’t change anything.

“It then started to go in my daughter’s room and my bathroom walls were covered. Now it’s started travelling in my living room.

“It’s dark and absolutely stinks. It’s horrible living like that.

“I’ve been trying to move since I’ve been here but they just won’t move me and the problem does not get fixed.

“Since I’ve moved in, I’ve had asthma and my daughter keeps getting a very bad chest.

“I’ve had to have two inhalers because it has made my breathing that bad.”

She said her daughter is often ill because of the mould.

And despite Sanctuary Housing painting her bedroom with anti-mould paint, the problem is still occurring.

“I don’t know what else needs to be done but they need to get rid of it,” she said.

“It’s disgusting and they shouldn’t expect a three-year-old girl to sleep in that kind of environment.

“She had liver failure when she was born so it scares me in case anything does happen to her and it makes her poorly and she ends up in hospital again.

“I want to move and have been asking them for two and a half years. I want to be in the same area so I can be close to my family.

“It would mean everything for us to be able to move. I need a garden for my daughter.

“I want to get away from the mould.”

Sanctuary Housing has responded by stating that they have made a number of visits to the property following compliants from Kelsey.

A Sanctuary Housing spokesman said: “As the concerns raised appear to be the result of moisture in the air in the property, to improve the airflow an appointment has been booked to install three new extractor fans in the bathroom and kitchen.

“We will also arrange to treat and clean areas of mould.

“In addition, earlier this month, we again provided Miss Myatt with the information she needs to apply for a transfer from this property and we will also speak to her about her housing options.”
