disabled bristol man living in car cos council is shit

i dont know bristol at all but i saw this story and it really fucking pissed me off:

just wondering if there was anyone in/from bristol here who could offer solidarity or support to this man, or organise some kind of action against bristol council...

Not being one to normally defend the council, but I can't see what they've done wrong here - they offered him alternative accomodation, which he turned down, and there is a suggestion that he's been paid housing benefit which he had not given to his landlord. :?
