A quarter of people retiring this year do not feel ready to give up work, research suggests today.

Some 24 per cent of people questioned were reluctant retirees, while just 31 per cent are looking forward to ending work, Prudential found.

More than half (57 per cent ) said that they would consider working past the state pension age, although most of these said that they would prefer to carry on part-time.
