A GRANDFATHER of 24 from Weston says he was left with nothing but a Tesco carrier bag of photos when he was taken into care.Jason Hadley, aged 67, was admitted to a residential care home when he suffered a nervous breakdown last Christmas.He says when he came out five months later his warden controlled flat had been stripped of his possessions.The father of 13, who now lives in Clifton Road, Weston, says two television sets, a microwave, kettle, toaster, sofa bed, a wardrobe and all his clothes were among the things taken from the North Somerset Housing owned flat in Shakespeare Court and he wants to know where they are.Mr Hadley used to be the caretaker of Birnbeck Pier in the 1990s. He said: "While I was in residential care North Somerset Council contacted my social worker and asked her to pick up my belongings. She was given only a Tesco carrier bag with some photos in it."When someone goes into care they don't think you will come out alive. There was about £1,000 worth of clothes missing and even now I've been given no explanation as to where my things are."It would mean the world to me to get my things back."A North Somerset Housing spokesman said: "North Somerset Housing is investigating Mr Hadley's compensation claim and will contact him shortly to resolve the matter.
