Peter Newell from Billingham says that he feels "disgusted and let down" by the government who have implemented the benefit changes.
He lives with his wife in a three bedroomed house which is specially adapted for his disability, although he says that he would be happy to move into a two bedroomed house but there aren't any available with the adaptations he needs.
Paul says that under the new "bedroom tax" he will lose £15 a week which will make it hard to pay for food or heating.
