Need a problem solved? Ask Grandma and Grandad!

Turns out it’s true… your grandparents really do know best!

According to a survey commissioned by mobile phone network giffgaff, 74 per cent of younger people ask their older relatives for advice, and four out of five agree that wisdom does come with age.

But granny’s advice might need updating, as some of the people surveyed mentioned their grandparents’ advice could be a little old-fashioned!
