Women in Merseyside are 'taking to the red light district for the first time' because of Universal Creditthe government has been told. Birkenhead MP Frank Field has written to Work and Pensions secretary Esther McVey to inform her that women in his constituency have been forced into sex work because the government's new welfare system is pushing them towards poverty. Mr Field said he wrote to the Liverpool-born welfare chief to raise his concerns after charities in his area - as well as the local police force - have become increasingly concerned about the impact Universal Credit is having on women in particular.
Ms McVey last week admitted in an interview that some people will be 'worse off' under the new system - which is currently rolling out in Liverpool.
And a special ECHO report highlighted how local politicians, charities and faith groups are really worried about the impact the new benefit will have on the most vulnerable people in Liverpool and beyond.
