High Court challenge over 'bedroom tax'

A disabled couple have gone to the High Court to take legal action against the Government's so-called bedroom tax.

They claim that the new housing benefit regulations coming in next month are discriminatory.

As part of welfare reforms, people in social housing will see their benefit cut if they have a spare bedroom.
