Women across the south join national march over pensions

A group of women from Basingstoke are to join thousands marching in London today.

"Women Against State Pension Inequality" was set up to campaign against changes to pensions.

Many say they face financial hardship due to not receiving a state pension until they're sixty five.

"I had already planned to retire and I only got two years' notice of the change. They say you can get job seeker's allowance and get a full time job but that's not easy at our age.

"A lot of people in our age group were carers and they only did part time jobs and aren't fit enough to do a caring job until they are 66."
