Hundreds of disabled people in the region have successfully overturned decisions to strip them of their benefits on appeal - in a sign the Government’s key disability welfare reforms are broken, campaigners say.
Figures obtained by this newspaper show around two thirds of appeals against decisions to take Personal Independence Payments (PIP) away from claimants are successful in the region.

PIP was introduced by the Government in 2013 to slash the welfare bill.
