A WOMAN says she has been 'pushed over the edge' by botched works on her council house.
Julie Taylor, 46, says she moved into a building site when she returned to her home in Elizabeth Street, Primrose Hill, after extensive works were supposed to be finished.
The mother-of-three saw red when she came home to find doors that would not close, uneven floors and wobbling radiators.
Mrs Taylor stormed to the Newsome housing office in St John's Avenue and threw a brick through the window.
She said: "I just flipped. I lost it. My husband is so embarrassed, but I was at the end of my tether.
"We were moved out because our house needed quite a lot of work doing on it. The biggest job was the dampproofing for the gable end, because water was getting in.
"We were told it would take about three weeks to complete and we were moved. It was five weeks later when we got back home."
"I often have my grandchild around to the house, but I can't at the moment because of all the mess and dust."
Mrs Taylor and husband Samuel, 51, moved to a house in Plantation Drive, Newsome, while the work was done. Mrs Taylor thinks the house was not ready to move back into.
She made a list of 34 jobs she says were not done properly.
"They have been back and sorted some of the problems out," she said.
"But there is still lots of dust and muck. I am waking up coughing in the middle of the night because of all the dust we have got in the house."
A Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing spokesman said: "If problems are properly reported we will address them. Only three items on the list given to the Examiner were reported to Kirklees Neigbourhood Housing - and these were dealt with.
"Mr and Mrs Taylor were escorted round their home after the contract finished and expressed their satisfaction with the work.
"We visited the property again and the radiators and shower have been dealt with."
