HEARTBROKEN Angel, one of Heather Frost's 11 children, has defended her mum's plan to move into a six-bed "mansion".
She hit out after thousands of people took to the internet to criticise the family's relocation plans.
Commenting on our website, www.thisis gloucestershire.co.uk, the 16-year-old said: "Heather is my mum, she doesn't work, but my father did, and he left, so why are you blaming my mother? How could she possibly work with 11 children? You people are animals. You have no right judging us.
"My mum has nothing to be ashamed about. All us kids are as happy as could be, full of joy and full of life, and as for thinking we are all going to be following in her footsteps you can think again. I'm very proud of my mum for the things she's been through and the things she will go through.
"My mum did not beg for the new house – we didn't even ask for it. We were happy in private renting but we were told they were building us a new house."
Some people have leapt to the family's defence.
William Poole, who lives in Bergen, Norway, read the The Citizen's article.
"We should see this as a positive thing," said Mr Poole, who is originally from Gloucestershire. "
The local authority is willing to do something for a woman and, most importantly, her 11 children.
"It is wrong to punish people just because of the number of children they have or if they are receiving benefits."
