Here's my report about changes to housing benefit which could lead to a rise in evictions, according to the National Housing Federation (NHF).
From October, the payment will no longer be made directly to landlords but to their tenants once a month.
The NHF, which represents some of Britain's biggest landlords, said they expected rent arrears to increase by a £250m a year.
