    On the 12th of June my family was illegally evicted from our rented property which we had rented since January of 2014. We returned to find our home boarded up with all our belongings and our two Fox terriers Lucy 34mth and roxy 8mth still inside. The police attended and we was taken to the police station to provide statements. Later that evening we was taken back to the property by two officers and allowed to regain access to our home. A marked police car was stationed outside the property for our own safety. The following day my partner was assaulted by a male when the landlord attended the property along with a number of males. We was warned that what you get for contacting the police. We left our home that day and have had no access at all. Both the police and local housing have made contact with the landlord who admitted we had been illegally evicted and stated that we where not allowed access to our belongings. Meaning we had nothing but the clothes we stand in.
    On the 2nd of July we had to have our beloved Lucy put to sleep after she suddenly became ill the vet believes she could of been struck in the stomach. Since the 13th of June we have been living in a tent with absolutely nothing. And the authorities seem in no great rush to help. And we desperately need a home we shouldn't be made to live like this. We are not at fault. And we desperately need help to find a home and a tree were barely surviving
