A MUM is set to be made homeless with her newborn boy.

Alfiya Musa will be homeless from today after her landlords ordered her to leave her home in Whitmore Way, Basildon.

The 26-year-old gave birth last month three months prematurely as she had to have an emergency C-section.

Now, her son is suffering from poor lungs and she fears he will just get worse with nowhere to stay.

She said: “My landlords have been telling me for a while that they did not want a child in the house.

“The house is old and they need to do a lot of work, which involves turning the gas and water off, so a child can’t live there.

“They gave me notice and I was working to find somewhere to go, but I had my son three months early which left me no time to find anywhere.

“I have been to the charities to try and help, but they don’t have capacity.

“When I went to the council, they said I was not eligible for them to re-house me, even though I’m on universal credit.”

Ms Mufa, who is originally from Bulgaria but has lived in Basildon for a year, sill has a job as an agency worker but fears for her son’s welfare.

She added: “I just don’t know where else to go, I’ve tried everything, but no one can help me.

“My son is very poorly, I can’t have him out on the streets, he needs a place to live.”

A spokesman for the council said: “We have not issued a decision that the housing applicant (Ms. Musa) is ineligible for assistance.

“However, we have been continuing our ongoing enquiries into the matter.

“The applicant has an appointment with our Housing Solutions Team today to discuss her situation further, when we will determine whether we have any ongoing duties towards her.”
