Protest rallies are due to take place in Bristol and Bath this afternoon against new rules which leave people claiming housing benefits facing deductions for spare rooms.
The so-called 'bedroom tax' will leave council tenants with £11 a week less if they're deemed to have one spare bedroom and £21 a week less if they have two. Bristol City Council says the rules will affect more than 4,700 households in the city.
The rally in Bristol is due to take place on College Green at 1pm. In Bath it's outside The Guildhall at the same time. Protests are taking place in 60 towns and cities nationwide.
