It's emerged the elderly are being hit three times - for renting out their family home under the Fair Deal scheme.

It means thousands of homes are lying vacant because of fears it could affect their means-test when going into a nursing home.

Independent Deputy Denis Naughten says they're being caught for the value of the home - the rent it could raise - and the money deposited in their account.

He says the Government needs to take urgent action 'before whole streets are left derelict' across the country.
