Dispossessed

  • Families take part in a charity fundraiser in a The Victory in Easington, to support local boy Bradley Lowery's cancer treatment. The lack of interest at national and local government level, has embedded a deep sense of community and volunteering in areas like Easington Colliery.

  • Amanda takes a drag on a cigarette while her children and their friends play in the streets of Easington Colliery, on the edge of green land where once a towering coal mine supported the entire community.

  • Lindsey dances with her daughter Bethany to their favourite song by Westlife. Bethany has learning difficulties and their shared love of the song brings the pair together.

  • Clothes are laid out on tables at a clothing bank for those in need to come and collect at a Miner's Welfare Club in Durham.

  • People in need come to collect free food and get a hot meal at a food bank in Hartlepool.

  • Reece, who suffers from drug issued, in the flat where he stays in Easington. He has spent most of his adult life in and out of the prison system, battling his habit.

  • Chairs are stacked at a food bank in Easington Colliery, where local people come for a hot meal for the cost of 50p.

  • A little boy sits in front of the pit houses which were once full of families supported by the coal mine. The houses were mostly bought by the miners with a payoff when they were made redundant from the closures, but the houses are now almost completely valueless as there is so little work and most are boarded up.

  • The path along the coastline where the Easington Colliery pit once stood. Closed down since 1993, the area is now a nature reserve and the land has gradually been reclaimed by nature from the heavy industry that once dominated the area.

  • Andrew and Imogen have breakfast together in the Wetherspoons in Peterlee, the nearest big town to the Easington Colliery where they live. Wetherspoons’ cheap beer and food is a magnet, and provides a social hub for the community.

  • Andrew lies on the floor with Bethany, who has learning difficulties, after an 18 hour shift at a delivery service where he worked over Christmas.

  • Bethany reaches up to touch her mum’s stomach, as Lindsey is pregnant with the family’s third child.Family is hugely important to people in the area - as jobs disappeared and many struggled, family and a sense of community is one of the building blocks of life for those who are struggling.

  • Lindsey and her daughters pass furniture, which they have appropriated from their neighbour, over the fence, as he is now leaving the area.

  • Families attend a free Halloween event at Easington Colliery Welfare Centre where the children are served free cakes and sweets. The event was free and unticketed for around 300 children so that those many who would not have been able to afford to attend or whose families are low on food and income, were also able to treat their young families without having to openly ask for help.

  • Kevin and his son Brandon are pictured at their home in Hartlepool. The family receive support from their local food bank as they struggle to find work.

  • Andy Nunn, a cage fighter, puts on his son's shoes as they leave his grandmother Myra's house on her birthday. Andy is sole carer for his older son Thai (pictured right) and cage fights for a living. He describes it and his sons as his reason for living.

  • Lindsey shows her daughter Sophie her wedding dress that she wants to pass on as a family heirloom. The dress was £100 pounds from a department store in the nearby city Sunderland.

  • People queue at the bar at the Easington Welfare Hallm at a fundraising event for local child Bradley Lowery who died of cancer in 2017.

  • Teenagers sit on the rides as the fair comes to town in Hartlepool

  • Lights illuminate just a few houses in Easington Colliery, that were once miner's cottages and filled with families of those worked in the mine. Now most stand dark.
