Council tax set to rise for 4m Britons

Adrian Holliday

Some hard-pressed Britons are set to pay more council tax. Up to 20% of town halls look likely to be hiking council tax charges.

It's thought as many as 4m households could see their council tax bills rising, hitting a typical benchmark Band D bill in England by as much as £50, despite the Coalition attempting to persuade councils to hold off. Will you be hit?
