Bad weather assistance for ethnic monorities only. *Updated*

I have a friend in Chesterfield and he has just phoned me with this story. I have not been able to verify it yet, but apparently there is similar on Facebook.

They have had the snow very bad where they are and because the temperature has not gone above freezing for over a week, the bad snow has now all turned to ice.

There is an old couple living on their street who cannot leave the house because of the treacherous conditions. My friend has been doing some shopping for them but apparently they have doctors appointments to get to.

His Mrs rang the council this morning to ask if there was anything they could do for them. The council asked for their address, then told them they are unable to help because they are not registered ethnic minorities.


"Priority is being given to ethnic minorities because they are not used to the cold weather."

This non ethnic minority old couple can go sing.
Has anyone heard similar stories to this one? Let me know.

*UPDATE* I spoke with Chesterfield council. They deny they are using any such system to prioritise and have promised to "Investigate the incident". I have now passed this back. Maybe it was just a misunderstanding.
