Disabled people win fund case

Five disabled people have successfully won their legal case to overturn a government decision to abolish the Independent Living fund.

Five disabled people have won their legal case challenge to the government's decision to abolish the Independent Living Fund (ILF).

The £320m ILF currently provides financial support which enables nearly 19,000 severely disabled people in the UK to live independent lives in the community.

The High Court ruled in April that the closure decision was lawful, but this was overturned by the Court of Appeal on Wednesday.
