Figures released by the Alliance Trust Research Centre have revealed that people aged between 50 and 64 years are facing an inflation rate of 4.2 per cent, 35 per cent higher than the official headline rate.

Shona Dobbie, head of the organisation, said if current trends continue the UK's pensioners could soon be worse affected.

The expert explained that the price deflation seen in clothing and audio-visual goods is being offset by the "continued pick-up" in food-price inflation.

Expats who still own a property in the UK, and who are concerned about their cost of living, can find out how the value of their property could provide them with a tax-free cash boost by seeking professional advice.
