Protesters, angry at sweeping welfare reforms, delivered a petition to the Department of Work and Pensions calling on Iain Duncan Smith to live off £53 a week for a year.

The Work and Pensions secretary claimed he could live off £53 a week if he had to but has dismissed the petition, which has 450,000 signatures, a stunt.
