Housing campaigner committed suicide after receiving a £3,000 legal bill from Hazel Blears
Neil Hill, who had challenged a rent rise for hundreds of tenants, e-mailed the Treasury solicitors saying: 'By the time you receive this I will be dead, having committed suicide. I hope you feel very proud of yourselves.
'Before you send another poor old person a bill for £3,000 please think of the consequences.
'Perhaps you'd like to explain to my family why I can no longer cope and what your position was in ending my life.'
