Ex soldier looses disability benefit

Ex soldier looses disability benefit

11:17am 23rd July 2010

An East Yorkshire soldier who lost a leg in an explosion in Afghanistan has reportedly had his disability benefit taken away.

That's despite Private Aron Shelton only being able to walk a few hundred metres with the help of a prosthetic limb.

Since he learnt to walk the 26 year old has lost his 180 pound-a-month allowance, which paid for a specially-adapted car.

A facebook group has been set up calling for justice for Aron.
