‘I can live like a king or queen’ ‘I WANT TO OB­SERVE LIFE’

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

Va­lerie spoke to the Peter­bor­ough Tele­graph in Novem­ber 2016, ex­plain­ing her mo­tive to live in Bridge Street was “just to ob­serve life, what peo­ple are do­ing, how they act and what makes them tick.” Va­lerie, who grew up near Worces­ter, said she had two daugh­ters and two grand­chil­dren. “I told them I was off camp­ing. Mum does what she wants to do,” she said. She used bins to sur­vive, and added: “I can live like a king or queen from those bins. Peo­ple waste clothes and shoes - that’s a prime ex­am­ple of how Eng­land fails.”
