Camden: benefits cap could force 700 families away

Camden Council says cuts to housing benefit could mean more than 700 families will have to move out of London to another city.

The benefit caps in the borough limits total payments to £500 a week for families, which means they won't be able to afford their current housing in the capital.

Camden Council says it's exploring other housing options for the families, in cities like Leicester and Birmingham.
