DONCASTER’S council house tenants face another rent hike, after councillors yesterday approved a budget that will also see hundreds of jobs shed and a children’s centre close.

Tenants in the borough’s 20,000 council houses face an average 5.89 per cent increase in their rent, taking bills from an average £62.78 to £66.46 a week.

Council tax was frozen, but contributions to police and fire budgets are going up.
