Housing benefit change protests held

Thousands have been demonstrating in UK cities against government plans to cut housing benefit for those considered to have too much space.

Protests against the plan - labelled the "bedroom tax" by Labour - have been held in at least 10 towns and cities, including Manchester, Birmingham and London.

The welfare changes, due in April, are expected to affect 660,000 people.
