Narrow door prevents Nottingham woman leaving home


A woman who uses a large wheelchair says she is a prisoner in her own home because it will not fit through the front door.

Jenny Rigby, from Nottingham, has chronic arthritis and is battling to lose weight. She said she has only left the house a couple of times in the last three years.

Nottingham City Homes said it was unable to widen the door but has offered Mrs Rigby alternative accommodation, which she has declined.
