TUC: 'Britain needs a pay rise'

This year's TUC conference has begun in Liverpool, with the theme being "Britain needs a pay rise."

The trades union congress says there has been a big increase in lower paid jobs, and claims that is hurting families and could hold back the economy.

The TUC is also calling for an end to what it says are "attacks on the wages and pensions of public sector workers."

John Moylan reports.
