UK families struggle with rising child poverty


Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May has said she wants to address what she calls the "burning injustice" of inequality. Latest figures show the number of children living in poverty rose by 200,000 last year up to 3.9 million.

A recent report warns that more than a million parents may have to skip a meal to feed their children this summer. Al Jazeera’s Barnaby Phillips reports from Northern Ireland, one of the poorest parts of the UK.
