Bailiff sent to gran for 5p

`A bailiff was sent to an 80-year-old gran’s council home to demand rent arrears of just five pence.

Alice Nelson was left “terrified” after the official called on her without warning.

She has lived at the same address for 45 years and has never knowingly been behind with her rent.

The bailiff told Alice, of Wigan, Greater Manchester, she had to hand over the 5p there and then.’
