5 Universal Credit changes announced TODAY - and 5 injustices that still haven't been fixed

Tory DWP chief Amber Rudd admitted parts of the system are not "compassionate" as she unveiled a major shake-up. Here's what's been announced, how it hits you - and why critics say it doesn't go far enough

A string of Universal Credit changes have been unveiled today in a bid to save the six-in-one benefit from disaster.

Tory Amber Rudd admitted parts of the system are not "compassionate" as she announced changes to the two-child limit, payments to landlords and the movement of millions of claimants.

The Work and Pensions Secretary also promised action in the future on inequalities that it's claimed hand all the money - and power - to domestic abusers.

But with 3million people set to be on Universal Credit with no transition payments by Christmas, unions, charities and Labour blasted her for not going far enough.

So what has actually been announced today, how will it hit you, and where does it fall short?

Here's a guide to five big things that have been announced - and five injustices still in the system.

Sadly, she failed to mention the ditching of sanctions. Only THEN will there be any `compassion` within this hellish system.
