NI super councils: 300,000 householders face rise due to changes

At least 300,000 householders in Northern Ireland will face rate rises as a result of moving into the new so-called super councils, according to figures from the Department of Finance.

It is estimated four out of every 10 ratepayers will be charged more.

Businesses in the affected areas say the rise will be an extra burden they cannot afford.
