How do the people of Manchester feel about the rise in the cost of living? We asked people in the city centre how they have been affected by rises in energy and food bills.

Prices are going up, taxes have been raised and energy bills are at a record high, leaving Britain in the grips of a cost of living crisis.

In April, the typical energy bill is expected to rise by about £700 a year, or 54% and shoppers have also noticed spiralling prices on supermarket shelves.
