Disability benefit changes will go ahead

Planned changes to disability benefits will go ahead, the Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith has said, insisting that reform is needed.

It has emerged half a million people are to lose the Disability Living Allowance over the next four years.

Campaigners have raised concerns over fair assessments, otherwise people with serious disabilities could lose essential money.
