Families 'bitterly disappointed' by 'bedroom tax' ruling

Solicitor Richard Stein has warned disabled people are facing eviction following today's 'bedroom tax' ruling and the families he represents would be appealing the decision.

Mr Stein said on the steps of the Royal Courts of Justice: "Our clients are bitterly disappointed with today's decision, but they are not defeated.

"We, along with the other lawyers acting on behalf of adults with disabilities, will appeal this judgement and we remain confident that the discrimination which was recognised by the court and which has been perpetrated against our clients by this legislation is not justified and is unlawful."
