The family of grandmother Stephanie Bottrill have shared the suicide note in which she blamed the Government for her decision to take her own life.
"Don't blame yourself for me ending my life," she wrote to her son Steven. "The only people to blame are the Government."
He has since said his 53-year-old mum, from Solihull in the West Midlands, could not cope with the financial burden of the new "bedroom tax".
