Viewers rally to help Colchester pensioner move TV


Viewers of BBC Look East have rallied to help a pensioner who was told by her council it would not collect her old television set from her home.

Charlotte Cubitt was told by Colchester Borough Council that she would have to leave the set on the kerb, refusing to collect it from inside her house citing health and safety concerns.

Mrs Cubitt said she was too frail to move the television and after her plight was featured on television, a number of viewers took it upon themselves to help her.
