JUST two weeks ago her mother died.
Now, teenage Ipswich mum Serena Mickelburgh is facing the prospect of being made homeless after being told she can no longer live at her mother's address.
The 18-year-old's mum Amanda Bennett died on August 14, two days after collapsing behind shops in Ipswich's Cambridge Drive.
But just a fortnight later, Ipswich Borough Council sent Miss Mickelburgh a letter saying she did not qualify to succeed the Swinburne Road tenancy and had until September 28 to leave.
