Britain's shame as poverty skyrockets with children and pensioners worst hit

Poverty has increased for children and pensioners over the last five years, a new study suggests.

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) said that, despite rising levels of employment, in-work poverty has also gone up because often people's pay, hours, or both, are not enough.

Just over half of people in poverty are in a working family, compared to 39% twenty years ago, according to the research.
