Ed Miliband 'to end bedroom tax' if Labour are elected

Labour has confirmed it would scrap the UK government's housing benefit changes.

The Westminster coalition says it is made the system more fair but there has been a fierce row over what critics call the bedroom tax. Councils say 35,000 homes here have been affected.

On the eve of his party's conference in Brighton, Ed Miliband told the BBC Labour would overturn the changes if it wins the next general election.

Daniel Davies reports and then joins Lucy Owen in the studio.
