Means-tested charges for day care are introduced today in Northamptonshire - six months after originally scheduled, reports BBC Northampton.

The controversial charges provoked criticism from voluntary groups and national charities when first announced and the county council undertook wide consultation.

It says the charges are necessary because there is no other way of maintaining day care services for those who need them.

They have been means tested so those who can afford charges will be made to pay.
