Care cap 'could hit £75,000'

The Government's cap on care costs could be as much as £75,000 per person, according to the Daily Mail.

Andrew Dilnot's review of social care funding suggested a cap of £35,000, but it is understood ministers are looking at closer to £60,000 or higher.

New research also suggests as many as one in ten pensioners have sold or downsized their homes to make ends meet.
