BBC headlines as care calculator is launched

The BBC has launched its "care calculator". The guide explains how the care system works for the over 65s and how much it costs where ever you live in the UK.

It was compiled using official council data, information gained under the Freedom of Information Act and figures on private fees from analysts LaingBuission.

It complements our coverage of care across TV, radio and online. This video shows how the calculator was launched on the TV news in January.
