More than a quarter of people living in north Kirklees are scraping by on less than the living wage.

The Trades Union Congress (TUC) revealed that 27 per cent of people living in Dewsbury earn less than the aspirational £7.65 per hour.

Figures also showed 26 per cent of employees in the Batley and Spen constituency also fall below the threshold.
