The government's back-to-work schemes have suffered a setback after Appeal Court judges agreed with a university graduate's claim that unpaid schemes were legally flawed.
Cait Reilly, 24, claimed that requiring her to work for nothing at a Poundland store breached laws on forced labour.
Judges quashed the regulations underpinning the work schemes.
