In 2015 a film, written by Paul Laverty and directed by Ken Loach was released called, I Daniel Blake.
It tells the story of Daniel Blake who worked as a joiner in Newcastle and now for the fist time has to seek help from the state. He crosses paths with single mother Katie who is battling to keep her two young children fed. Daniel and Katie find themselves in no mans land, striving to pull themselves out of the welfare bureaucracy of modern day Britain.
