The challenges posed by an ageing population, including six-generation families, demand radical changes to the worlds of work and saving, former Treasury head Andrew Turnball warns.

In a report for the Social Market Foundation he spells out the consequences for public policy makers as life expectancy increased.

New indices measuring the cost of living may be needed and housing should adapt to the requirements of old age.

'We need to face these demographic changes directly,' Lord Turnball said. 'It is essential that we understand the consequences'.

He called for a radical overhaul of employment and leadership models.
