Benefit cap fears: 'I don't know what they want me to do'

Figures out today reveal that 40,000 people in Scotland, England and Wales will be affected by the new benefit cap.

ITV News reporter Sejal Karia has spoken to Candice O'Halloran who fears that the money she will lose through the benefits cap will see her living back on the streets.

Candice said she has been looking for a job for years but has failed to find work, despite being happy to take anything, "I will clean toilets, I'll work behind a bar, I don't care."

She said: "I don't know what they want me to do."
