Nearly 14,000 disabled people who rely on a specialist motoring allowance have had their cars taken away from them following government welfare changes.


Figures seen by the BBC show almost half of those having to be reassessed for this support under the changes lost their Motability vehicle.


Many had been adapted to meet their owners' needs and campaigners warn it could lead to a loss of independence.


But the government says the new process is fairer and people can appeal.



So, where is the incentive to return to work if you are no longer mobile ?


I think it is rather disingenuous of the Minister for Disabled people to say that people can appeal - even more so when the original decisions are being overturned - those affected will have already had their lives turned upside down and distress caused !
