A group of mothers has lost its claim that the benefit cap breaches their human rights.

The women, all from London, had brought the case on the grounds that it harms their right to a reasonable home and family life and breaches the rights of their children.

They had feared it would leave them destitute, with their lawyers arguing that it was a "cruel and arbitrary" measure and "reminiscent of the days of the workhouse".
