Hutton: 'We can't carry on as we are'

Members of public sector pension schemes should pay higher contributions, says an independent commission led by Lord Hutton.

The change is an initial recommendation from the commission, which was set up to consider ways to cut the rising cost of public sector pension schemes.

Lord Hutton told the BBC's Hugh Pym people may need to retire later as the current system is "unsustainable".
