Decades living in a shambles

For more than 30 years, Jeffrey Nightengale has been living in a house which was crumbling around him.

Nightengale lives in 3rd Avenue Licorish Village, My Lord’s Hill, St Michael, and his pleasant demeanour belies his living conditions. He is now forced to live in the front of his home as the back has collapsed and is open to the elements. He said his floorboards have all but given way.

He lived in the house from age 14 but left in his 20s, returning only when his father died in 1983. Now 67 years, he said his Christmas wish was for a new house to settle in for his twilight years.
