Pembrokeshire couple's relief over housing benefit ruling win

A family have won a court ruling after the UK Government cut their housing benefit over a spare bedroom used by their grandson's carers.

Judges dismissed a government appeal against a Court of Appeal ruling in favour of Paul and Susan Rutherford, who care for their grandson Warren.

The Supreme Court ruled the housing benefit cut discriminated against them.

Mr Rutherford, of Clunderwen, Pembrokeshire, said: "We are happy and hugely relieved with today's result."
