Pensioners 'worried' about inflation
The UK government's targeted rate of inflation rose in August, following higher prices for clothing and footwear, petrol and energy.
The rate of Consumer Prices Index (CPI) inflation rose to 4.5% from 4.4% in July, according to figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
The Retail Prices Index (RPI) measure increased to 5.2% from 5%.
The elderly and people on a fixed income are particularly suffering the effects on inflation.
