Mary is in her 60s, and she stopped work in 2007 as she suffers from Arthritis and emphysema. She was on incapacity benefit, but when that changed to Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) in 2013, Mary gained only 3 points for mobility of the 15 needed. Her ESA was stopped and the report says she walked for an hour a day in the park next to her home. However, there is no park next to her home and she couldn't walk for 10 minutes, let alone an hour. Thankfully, Hastings Advice and Representation Centre represented Mary at tribunal and gained the benefits (backdated to 2013).
