|Thousands of Carers set to lose benefits|
Thousands of carers in England, Wales and Scotland are set to lose benefits when new disability-claim rules start.
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) says 5,000 carers currently eligible for a £58.45 a week allowance will no longer be when personal independence payments replace the disability living allowance this April.
It says the changes are necessary and 20,000 additional carers should gain.
Charity Carers UK says this is "cold comfort" to those who will miss out.
More than a million people receive carer's allowance. And for about 270,000 of them, this entitlement is dependent on the eligibility for the disability living allowance (DLA) of someone of working age for whom they care.
