'We are living just on the breadline': UK budget to put pressure on struggling families

Income tax will increase for many people in the United Kingdom, and energy bills will rise next year.

Local authorities have also been told they can increase council tax.

The UK budget plan will leave many people – and the services they rely on – struggling to cope.

UK residents Paul Bomer said he was “really, really worried” about the future as the cost of living continues to rise, putting pressure on struggling families.

Mr Bomer’s wife, Sarah, said their family was living “on the breadline” as now they have to shop “so carefully”.
