Barnsley tenant's fears over bedroom tax

Changes to housing benefit which come into force next April mean about 80,000 people in Yorkshire and the Humber region will lose hundreds of pounds a year if they are living in a house the government says is too big for them.

Tina Heron, from Barnsley, expects to be one of those to fall foul of what is being dubbed "the bedroom tax".

She told BBC Look North she may have to leave the place she has called home for 15 years when her son moves out.
