'Bedroom tax' costs disabled Wrexham man £600 a year

Prime Minister David Cameron has defended the so-called "bedroom tax" which will penalise people on housing benefit who have one or more spare rooms.

He was responding to the case of a severely disabled man from Wrexham, who faces losing more than £600 a year for having an extra bedroom.

His family say it is essential for his daily routine and moving house or sharing is not an option.

BBC Wales Today's Matthew Richards reports.
