A protest is taking place in the centre of Cardiff against what has been dubbed the 'bedroom tax'. It is part of a nationwide campaign against the UK Government's benefit plans.

The tax will be split into two rates: If you have one extra room the charge is 14 per cent of your eligible rent, if you have two or more extra rooms it is 25 per cent of your eligible rent
