Rising prices are of course having a real impact on people already struggling with the cost of living.
The charity, Turn2us, which advises people in financial difficulty, says it’s receiving an increasing number of calls for help from those in full-time employment.

We were invited inside the call centre where the Turn2us helpline operates.
