HOARDER May Appleton has been told she will be allowed to move back home only three days after being evicted.

The 87-year-old, and her three sons, met with officials from Weaver Vale Housing Trust on Saturday.

They were told they can return to the house on Langford Road, in Lostock Gralam, once it is safe.

“We have offered Mrs Appleton an opportunity to return as soon as practically possible,” said trust chief executive Steve Jennings in a statement.

“That is subject to the house being made safe and for some items to be placed in storage in line with previous requests made to the family.”

May, who has lived in the house for 61 years, left on Wednesday after bailiffs smashed down the front and back doors.

Sons Brian, Mark and Paul were told to leave at the same time.

They have been locked in a three-year battle with the trust, which acts as their landlord, over possessions the trust claims are a fire hazard.

“We are pleased the family and Weaver Vale Housing Trust have started this dialogue,” added Mr Jennings.

“We now hope to work together to resolve the difficulties at the house.”

He said the family is considering an offer of alternative local accommodation in the meantime.
