Cuts could lead to more homeless

The South West could see a rise in homelessness if the Government goes ahead with plans to cut housing benefit.

That is according to the homeless charity Crisis, who warn thousands of people in the region face losing hundreds of pounds a year.

They say people living in one bed properties in Bath and North East Somerset and West Somerset will be worst affected with cuts of £676 per year.

While in Cheltenham, Tewkesbury and Taunton Dean those living in one bed flats will see cuts of £624 per year.

And nearly 4000 people in Wiltshire will also feel the affects.

Crisis warn it could lead to more people failing to pay their rent and then being thrown out onto the streets by landlords.
