Disabled man given 1p Universal Credit over X-mas

A disabled man says he is bamboozled with the new Universal Credit benefit - after receiving a payment of just 1p.

Neil Wright, 50, who suffers from acute arthritis and can't work, said he's unable to fathom why his usual monthly UC payment of £284 turned into a bank deposit of just a penny.

The nominal payment went in on December 14, 2018, and he's not due another until January 14, 2019 - leaving him with less than a pound to buy food with.

Neil, a former taxi driver of Plymouth, Devon, said: "I've got 25p in my pocket and about 52p in the bank.
