'Familes Tsar' warns of benefits cap risks to most vulnerable

The Government's "families tsar" told BBC Radio 5 live's John Pienaar that she was worried about vulnerable families being caught out by the coalition's plans for a benefit cap.

Emma Harrison is employed by the government to get people off benefits and into a job but said that the £26,000 limit could end up hurting the wrong people.

The cap is set at the equivalent to the average post-tax salary of a working household.
