TORY changes to housing benefit will impact heavily on people in North Ayrshire - and it won't just be the 15,000 on housing benefit who suffer.

Focusing on one aspect of the Coalition Government's changes, she said that in North Ayrshire about 3,000 people will be affected and will lose up to £10 a week, simply because of the single occupancy rule.
