Four single mothers win High Court case against Universal Credit.

They claimed that the changes made to the benefits system left them out of pocket, after it took into account two sets of wages in one month's benefits calculation.

The restturcturing of the benefits system in the UK has been hit by a number of setbacks, as the complete roll out of it continues to be delayed.#

In the latest blow to Amber Rudd's policy, four single mothers have now won a high court case against it.

The four claiments said that they were left "out of pocket" when their payment calculations took two months wages into account.

It's because they were paid on or around the last day of the month.

The Work and Pensions Secretary today announced another u-turn for the policy.

The government will scrap a controversial clause which would see benefits restricted for families with more than two children.

The system sees six individual benefits rolled into one monthly payment, that is calculated alongside each pay packet.
