The Conservative Party leader was approached by a woman who told May that benefit cuts had left her with $187 to live on per month, despite suffering from learning difficulties.

The woman, Cathy Mohan, said that the abolition of the Disability Living Allowance and its replacement, the Personal Independence Payment, or PIP, had left her with "nothing".

"You took it all away from me," she said.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn later said Mohan had confronted May with "the reality of the suffering her Government has caused".
