Food charity Thanet Families in Need sees demand rise

A charity which provides emergency food to people suffering financial hardship in Kent has reported a dramatic increase in the number of people needing help since the benefit system changed.

Thanet Families in Need said it had seen three times as many people asking for food since the changes came in less than a fortnight ago.

The government has insisted that reforms to the benefit system are needed.
