Video: State pension age to rise to 68 seven years earlier than planned

The state pension age will rise from 67 to 68 from 2037, Work and Pensions Secretary David Gauke has announced.

He told MPs the Government was accepting the recommendation made in the Cridland review earlier this year.

This means the change will come in seven years earlier than initially planned.
