Iain Sim, Chief Executive, Coast & Country Housing.
A disabled woman who is unable to share a bedroom with her husband has won an appeal against the Government's so-called bedroom tax, in what is being described as a landmark ruling.
She took Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council to a tribunal after it said they were under-occupying their three-bedroom house.
The tribunal found the council had not taken into account her requirements when it rejected her argument for separate bedrooms.
The lady, who wants to remain anonymous, is a tenant of Coast and Country Housing, whose Chief Executive is welcoming the ruling.
