Theresa May was confronted on the general election campaign trail by an angry disabled voter in Oxfordshire, England, on Monday 15 May.

Cathy, who bumped into the prime minister as she toured a local market, told May face-to-face that she wanted her Disability Living Allowance (DLA) to return.

The benefit started to be replaced by Personal Independence Payments (PIPs) under the Conservative-led coalition government in 2013.

"Do you know what I want? I want my Disability Living Allowance to come back. Not have PIPs and get nothing... I can't live on £100 a month. They just took it all away from me," Cathy said.

May attempted to reassure her by saying that the Conservatives plan to focus more on mental health. But the prime minister's words failed to calm Cathy, who quickly retorted: "I mean people in wheelchairs, and everybody, not just myself."

She later added: "The fat cats keep the money and us lot get nothing."

The confrontation, captured by Channel 5 News, came as May campaigned alongside Nicola Blackwood, who is hoping to get re-elected as the Tory MP for Oxford West and Abingdon.

The exchange also followed the Conservatives' promise to boost workers' rights across the UK.

The proposals include new rights for those who have to leave work to care for family members and a plan to keep all workers' rights currently guaranteed by EU law.

"By working with business, reducing taxes and dealing with the deficit we have delivered steady improvements to the economic prospects of working people. Now is the time to lock in that economic growth and ensure the proceeds are spread to everyone in our country," May said.

The latest opinion poll from Survation, of more than 1,000 voters between 12 and 13 May, gave the Conservatives an 18 point lead over Labour (48% versus 30%).
