As the gofundme fundraising page for the alleged “Heathrow homeless duo” Alan Lane and Katrina Smith is removed, many ask: “Where has the money raised for them gone?”
The public initially reacted to the alleged plight of Alan Lane and Katrina Smith by expressing sympathy and after one – a woman named Natalie Longford – went as far as to set up a gofundme page for the couple, donations flowed in. Now, after The Steeple Times and others raised questions about this story, the page has been taken down.
The Steeple Times contacted gofundme’s media department on Sunday 15th February for comment. An automated response claimed the firm normally answers press queries within two hours. As of 10am on the 16th February, no answer had been received.
Many still wish to know whether Lane and Smith ever really lived at Heathrow Airport and want to be told where the money raised by Natalie Longford through her gofundme campaign actually has gone. It is time for some answers.
