A man from Gravesend is trying to recover from the shock of being told he's dead by the local council.

Andrew Kirchin had been on holiday when his daughter received a letter from the authorities saying they were "adjusting" his council tax accordingly. He then got a note from the Inland Revenue as well.

David Johns reports, speaking to Andrew and his daughter Susan.
