After the first revaluation for seven years, new business rates come into force in England on the 1 April.

Many small businesses, GP surgeries and schools complain they are facing increases. The government says that under the changes 600,000 businesses will pay no rates at all, and only a quarter will face rises.

Neil Whitham, the owner of a fish and chip shop in St Ives, tells Radio 4's Today how much the new rates are going up for him.
