Now Bernard Page, county chairman of Derbyshire Royal British Legion, has said he believed Harold should have kept the free service.

´╗┐British Legion says Harold should get free check

fixing and setting up phone lines and came under enemy fire in Libya, where the truck in which he was travelling was strafed.

Only weeks after the checks stopped, Harold fell in his flat and stayed on the floor, unable to get up, for two and a half days until his grandson found him.

Mr Page said he had "a lot of sympathy" for Harold and his family.

The cost of the intercom check was previously funded by the council's housing related support budget, which was cut from in 2012 13 to in this financial year.

The council has expressed its "deep regret" for what happened to Harold and said it was forced by the "financial climate" to focus its spending on areas which, unlike "housing related support", it must provide by law.

He said: "He should be receiving a free service where he's checked on every day, as should other veterans in a similar situation."

A pendant he had been given, which he could have used to sound the alarm, was flung across the room as he fell.

Councillor Mark Tittley, cabinet member for adults and health, said: "Whilst it would be great to be able to offer a 'safe and well check' to all vulnerable people who wished to have one, the current funding settlement from government does not give the council enough resources."

A WORLD War Two veteran who fell and spent days on the floor after a free daily check on his welfare was stopped should have been receiving special treatment, a British Legion boss has said.

While I understand that money should be saved, so that the council can balance their books. Everybody should see the the outcome of unnecessary cuts, and excessive salaries of some council workers. OK they have cut funding for the daily call check, 42 pence a day amounts to each year. Multiply this by the amount of residents being called, add the free rent and council tax and you have a fortune. Rent free, free council tax, I agree with. however if the council does not cut back on things that they redeem unnecessary, then the rents, council tax, and other services will have to increase even more. I agree that Mr Lee should be looked after because of everything he has done, however where was is son, and other members of his family? Surely they can work togetherto give his father a call every day to make sure that he is ok, and the neighbours come to that. Give this man the respect he deserves.

Harold Lee, 99, said he was told he would have to start paying 42p a day to keep having the daily checks via intercom at his sheltered flat in Boyer Street, Derby, after April 1.

Mr Tittley previously said: "The council consulted widely on the proposed changes to the way that housing related support services are delivered and how the very significant reduced funding from the Coalition Government cuts should be spent on them."

Harold served twice in the Allied campaign against Rommel in North Africa, and in Iran, helping the Russians.

he ought to be looked after for what he's done in past years."

Derwent Living, which runs the sheltered housing complex where Harold lives, has said the removal of the intercom checks was down to cuts in the cash it is given by Derby City Council.

Wardens are being taken out of sheltered housing due to cuts, pull cords/pendants supplied but still paid for by residents, how many will die because they had a stroke or fell and were unable to activate these essential safety devices. At least if wardens had still been around they would have stood a chance of being found sooner rather than later. This could be anyone's mother or father and even you Nike Air Vapormax White Blue
