Young people leaving the care system in Wales will no longer pay council tax under legal changes due to come into force in April, ministers have said.

About a third of Wales' 22 local councils already exempt care leavers from the tax, some until the age of 21 and others to 25.

Charities had called on Welsh ministers to end a "postcode lottery" over whether they pay council tax.

All care leavers under 25 will now get the help, under new legislation.
