Savers' champion Ros Altmann has stepped down as director-general of over-50s group Saga after two and a half years in the post.

Dr Altmann is a vocal campaigner on behalf of pensioners who have seen their savings pots eroded by record low interest rates and the effect on annuity values of the Bank of England's money printing programme.
