A DISABLED man in Wembley has been living with a huge hole in his kitchen ceiling for nearly two months.
MrFoxx, 43, of Barnes Wallis Court, Barnhill Road, has slammed the Metropolitan Housing Trust for not fixing the ceiling nearly eight weeks after it collapsed.
Thetenant, who is registered disabled after breaking two vertebrae in a road accident 19 years ago, has told The Harrow Observer that he is at his "wits' end".
Mr Foxxsaid he has contacted the housing association several times, even going into the offices in person to ask for help but they still have not fully fixed the hole, which measures almost three ft by two ft.
Theissue started in September last year when an upstairs neighbour flooded their flat, which resulted in water running through the ceiling into Mr Foxx's home in several places.
On January 16 this year, the kitchen ceiling finally collapsed after bowing.
MrFoxx said: "I am at my wits' end. Friends come round and they can't believe I haven't lost my sanity yet. It's so frustrating but I am just trying to stay calm about it. I can't use my kitchen at all, and it is costing me so much money because I have to keep having take aways and I've run up a huge bill with my local shop.
"I'm so fed up and don't understand why this hasn't been sorted out yet."
MrFoxx, who does not work, said there is mould in the flat where the water dripped through the ceiling and bugs are collecting in the kitchen. He is concerned that the situation is going to start affecting his health.
A spokesman forMetropolitan Housing Trust in London said: “We are very sorry our tenant has experienced problems with water leaking through his ceiling. We have visited the property to carry out an assessment of the issue and called in a leak specialist who carried out extensive repair work.
"Wehave arranged for the hole that has been left in the ceiling to be fixed and the room to be redecorated. This work will begin soon and the repair and redecoration should be completed by the end of the month. We again apologise the inconvenience this has caused.”
