Anti-poverty campaigner wins battle against council over tax bills

An anti-poverty campaigner who says millions of poor people could be getting unfair bills for costs run up by councils who take legal action against them for non-payment of council tax has won a high court fight.

Retired vicar Paul Nicolson took legal action after complaining that magistrates ruling on allegations of council tax non-payment were failing to check the accuracy of costs incurred by Haringey.
