Unemployed agoraphobic woman, 22, claims 'discrimination' after being told she can't attend job centre via videolink

"Jen Lant risks losing her £98 unless she attends monthly meetings in person

The 22-year-old says she is discriminated against because she is disabled

An unemployed agoraphobic who receives benefits by attending Jobcentre meetings via videolink claims she is the victim of discrimination after being told she must start turning up in person.

Jen Lant risks losing the £98 employment support allowance she gets from the monthly meetings and argues the new rules discriminate against her because of she is disabled.

The 22-year-old, who has a GP's letter explaining her condition, has 'good days' when she can leave her house for a couple of hours but is often unable to set foot outside."
