Gordon Brown: Govt must act now on cost-of-living crisis

Former prime minister Gordon Brown has called on the government to "act now" on the cost-of-living crisis.

He fears that by waiting until a new prime minister is chosen, it will be "too late" and that people will be "experiencing great hardship and an unbearable burden of unpayable bills" in October.
