BBC coverage of the campaign calling on the council to stop using bailiffs, made possible by the Cable and others.

Bristol City Council has taken a step that could make a difference to the lives of tens of thousands of people in the city, improve the collection of council tax to pay for public services, and reduce the ability for bailiffs to profiteer at the expense of Bristolians in debt.

This development follows a five-month Bristol Cable campaign and ongoing pressure from councillors and other sources calling on the council and Mayor Rees to change the way the council collects debt.
