'Millions face council tax rise'
Many of the poorest households in England face council tax rises from April as a result of government funding cuts.
Most councils are expected to increase bills for people on low incomes, including some on benefits, to make up for a 10% shortfall from central government.
Some will have to pay council tax for the first time.
A typical bill will rise from April by between £100 and £250 a year, but some could rise as much as £600, the Resolution Foundation think tank says.
