TV presenter Kirstie Allsopp says storm victims who get compensation are 'spoilt'

Channel 4’s Location Location presenter has slammed storm victims as ‘spoilt’ if they receive compensation for Christmas powercuts.

Residents in Cumbria are among the thousands who were left without electricity after strong winds and rain hit the UK last week.

Kirstie Allsopp tweeted: “What on Earth has happened to Blitz spirit? Billions of people get by with very limited electricity #SpoiltUK.”

She later tweeted: “Storm winds blow, trees come down, electricity goes off, it’s not much fun, need to make contingency plans, why does this mean compensation?”

Have your say

There was a war on during The Blitz - people were getting bombed - NO CONTEST. I feel for the people without power - bet Allsop had electricity to her big country house. HAPPY NEW YEAR.
