A FAMILY is seeking compensation from Twigden Homes after severe damp in their brand new home caused a health visitor to raise the alarm about their baby's health. For six weeks over the winter, builders claimed the creeping fungus was the result of condensation caused by washing and drying baby clothes. When the main bedroom in the flat in Bradley Road, Hinchingbrooke, Huntingdon, became so wet, it was then thought that the problem was a leaking radiator. Nicola Dean, 24, told The Hunts Post that mould grew on the carpet and spread to a double bed, her baby's crib and then on to clothes in two wardrobes. She said, as a test, she left a bib belonging to her six-month old baby, Maisie, on the floor for a week and it became covered in black mould. After weeks of living with the problem, it was confirmed on Monday by an environmental health officer from Huntingdonshire District Council that the problem was caused by a sealant applied by builders. Now, Miss Dean and her partner, scaffolder Liam Johnson, 23, are seeking compensation.
