A disabled North Paddington pensioner has slammed her housing company for forcing her to live in near darkness.
Joyce Lawrence, 78, of Errington Road, who is blind in one eye, claims rotten frames caused the windows to smash in her living room and kitchen.
Housing company Walterton and Elgin Community Homes (WECH) boarded up the panes when they broke eight weeks ago, leaving her with just one window in her kitchen.
Her niece, Sally Lawrence, said: "The last window is hanging on by a thread. It's so dangerous that my aunt's worried it will smash if she tries to open it. If that one breaks too, she will be left without any natural light at all.
"She's already blind in one eye, and I don't think living in total darkness would be much good for her other eye. It's nearly winter too, so I'm worried her flat will get really cold if the glass isn't replaced soon."
Miss Lawrence added that her aunt lives in a third floor flat above a family with three young children. She said: "Some of the broken shards of glass have been left on the outside of the window sill. My aunt's terrified the glass will fall on them when they're playing outside and kill them."
A WECH spokeswoman said: "We have placed an order to have the windows reglazed in the living room and the kitchen. We were waiting for a quotation from the contractors for the cost of replacing the window frames, as it always take a few weeks to process repair work. It's being taken care of."
