A family is being forced to move 250 miles into Wales after their local council gave them a sudden eviction order.

Mum-of-three Rae Layton, 43, from Ponsanooth, Cornwall, says a housing officer told her to treat the move from all her friends and family as a “holiday”.

The family faced an eviction notice in April, giving Rae until July to get a new home.

But due to rent increases, she has not been able to find anything within her means.

Now Cornwall Council says they may have to pack up their lives and move to Cardiff for emergency shelter.

Rae told Berkshire Live: “The City Council told me my kids can think of it as a holiday.

“She didn’t mean it badly, but it’s just a horrible situation to be in. On April 22nd I received an email saying she wanted us out. I understand, I understand everything.

“People should be able to leave fairly enough and get another rental property. But people are demanding rising rents.”

Rae says the move will isolate her from friends and family.

She said: “My son has been in this house since he was born. Growing up, I moved from pillar to pillar and I hated it. You all have friends.

“My best friend lives two days away from me, we see each other every night.

“There is such a large support network that I will miss. All parents take care of all children. At the moment I have to send all my documents.

“There is no real estate. They want to put me in an emergency shelter, my friends have been in one for six months. She was pushed here, there and everywhere.

“I think when she told me I was like ‘no.’ I just lay there at night thinking about what I would do. The children couldn’t go to school because they didn’t have an address.”

Rae added: “All my friends live on my street. It’s the government that’s doing it, they have to change it.”

A Cornwall Council spokesman said: “We are doing everything we can to keep residents in their own communities.

“The Council has set up emergency shelters and is buying and refurbishing houses to provide medium-term temporary accommodation, but the current unprecedented demand means we must use emergency shelter hotels.

“On very few occasions we may need to offer accommodation outside of Cornwall at short notice and as a last resort.

“We are trying to get people back to Cornwall as soon as possible and are continuing to offer support to help them find long-term homes.”
