Concern over women's pension age

A growing numbers of MPs, including Liberal Democrats and Conservatives, are expressing their concerns over plans to raise the women's state pension age to 66 by 2020.

The change will mean around 330,000 women have to work up to two years longer than they expected.

The government bill has its second reading on Monday amid increasing calls for ministers to offer a compromise.
