Those claiming council tax benefits in Lincolnshire are being asked to prepare for a shakeup.

The responsibility for paying out the benefits will be handed over to Lincolnshire's District Councils.

But with a 10% cut to the budget for support, they are warning up to 66,000 households could lose out.
