BABY Jenson lets out cries of pain between gulps of breath, struggling to pull air into his little lungs as he lies on his back.
In the first twelve months of his life, he has been in hospital 26 times, had 15 rounds of antibiotics and, at one point, mum Amanda couldn’t lay him flat because he “turned blue” – and it’s all caused by the toxic damp walls in his house.
Jenson, from Brixham, Devon, is the youngest of seven children crammed into the three-bedroom house which is so riddled with “toxic” black mould that only two rooms are habitable.
