THE WOMAN who lived next-door-but-two to record-breaking serial killer Harold Shipman is going on a sensational three-day luxury caravanning break in Anglesey… and YOU'LL be footing the bill!
Lucy Hartless, 42, who pockets a whopping £16,000 of taxpayer's money each year as a staff nurse at St Ratner's Hospital in Manchester, plans to blow almost £85 on a no-holdsbarred long weekend at a top Welsh caravan park.
The news that the woman who lived only three doors away from Britain's most notorious serial killer is planning a lavish knees-up at the expense of decent, law-abiding Britons has outraged moral indignation groups.
"It's horrific," steamed campaigner Clive Perfect of Staying Annoyed. "This greedy woman is having a three-day beano in Anglesey, with a black-andwhite television and cold running water, with money taken from our taxes –money that could be spent on schools or hospitals."
And as Hartless prepares for the holiday, further shocking details have emerged of her extravagant lifestyle, funded by the ordinary British citizen. According to a colleague, who asked to remain nameless, the notorious late murderer's blonde ex-neighbour

"It beggars belief," fumed Perfect. "I am sickened that this woman can continue to grab government salary handouts working in the Accident & Emergency ward of a hospital, whilst the late Shipman's victims don't get a penny. I'm sure many of them would have loved the chance to go gallavanting off to Anglesey."
Tomorrow, a 25-signature petition will be handed to the Prime Minister's driver by a group of protesters from Staying Annoyed. In it, they describe heartless Lucy's luxury holiday as "an outrage," and call for her to be killed.
