The Government should introduce a personal savings scheme to fund people's care in later life and help tackle the looming "care crisis", the director-general of Saga said.

Ros Altmann has written to Chancellor George Osborne ahead of his Autumn Statement, urging him to do more to help savers of all ages, including offering better incentives to people saving for a house deposit and planning for retirement.
