'Bedroom tax': Government to appeal court ruling

The Court of Appeal has ruled that the so-called bedroom tax discriminates against a domestic violence victim and the family of a disabled teenager.

The ruling followed legal challenges by a woman who has a panic room in her home, and the grandparents of a 15-year-old who requires overnight care.

Ministers have said they will appeal and the case is now due to be decided in the Supreme Court.
