One household in Brent is receiving 2,872 a week for their home, which has cost up to 177,497 since January 2004. A family in Camden has been handed more than 189,000 since August 2001, according to figures released under the Freedom of Information Act. They are now in a five-bedroom house that costs 1,515 a week, despite local estate agents saying similar properties are available at half the cost. The claimants in Camden have seven children. Another claimant in Westminster has been paid 76,000 in the last 12 months. A Brent council spokesman said: The rent and the amount of housing benefit payable for private sector tenants are deter- mined by government policy and not Brent council. A Department For Work And Pensions spokeswoman said: We capped the local housing allowance in April because it was unacceptable that a small number received excep- tionally high benefits. BY MARk BLUndEn ANGELINA JOLIE took her twins on her latest trip as a United Nations goodwill ambassador. Jolie, 34, was joined by partner Brad Pitt, 45, and their 14- month-old twins Vivienne and Knox, on a visit to the Middle East. The couple treated the toddlers to ice cream at the Licky Licious Ice Cream shop in Amman, Jordan, where they happily posed for pictures. From there, they travelled to Damascus where Pitt and Jolie spent time with two Iraqi refugee families before meeting Syrian president Bashar al-Assad to discuss health care and education. Jolie said: I hope the world recognises that we all have to take care of Iraqi refugees.
