    How UK 'turned its back' on older workers - By Julian Knight , BBC NEWS
    Lose your job after the age of 50 - or even 40 in some industries - and you may have a fight on your hands to find a new one.

    Stories are legion of older workers leaving employment never to return.

    In fact, according to official figures, some 2.8 million people over the age of 45 are without paid work in the UK.

    All this despite longer lives, an ageing population, a tight labour market and, from 1 October, the introduction of new laws to combat age discrimination in the workplace.

    Why is it that so many people in their 50s and 60s are without work?
