'Benefit sanctions harmed my mental health'

The inflexibility of the benefit sanctions system is leading to people having their support taken away unfairly, the Labour MP Rebecca Long Bailey has said.
She told the Victoria Derbyshire programme the current system can penalise the most vulnerable in society.
Lee Curry received a four-month benefits sanction for failing to turn up to an appointment he was not told about.
He has since had his benefits reinstated on appeal, but says the sanction accentuated his depression.
