Hundreds of protestors have been in Manchester to demonstrate against the government's so- called Bedroom Tax. The measures will cut the amount of money social housing tenants get for living in properties classed as having spare bedrooms.
A series of protests are due to take place across the country today against plans to cut benefits for social housing tenants who are considered to be living in a house which is too big for their needs.

Protests against the so-called 'Bedroom Tax' are expected to take in 53 towns and cities including London, Manchester, Birmingham, Belfast and Glasgow.
