Former prime minister Gordon Brown has demanded the Government come up with an emergency budget before a "financial timebomb" in October "pushes millions over the edge".

After a new report commissioned by Mr Brown suggested Government help has failed to address households' needs, he said the Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss must agree to emergency measures "this week".
