Household charge collectors set to send second round reminders

The agency responsible for collecting the household charge says it will send a second round of reminder letters to those yet to pay the charge.

It comes as the Local Government Management Agency says it's received over €100m in payment from the 1m households who've so far registered for the charge.

The LGMA will for the first time warn recipients that legal action may be taken if they fail to pay.
