Millions of Britons could be forced work deep into old age, according to reports following a government review on taxes.

The state pension age could potentially be lifted to 75 or even 81, from 65 (for men) and 60 (for women). Already, the age limit is due to rise to 67 between 2026 and 2028, and could later be linked to life expectancy.

Elsewhere, is the news that Rolls Royce (LON:RR.) has given in to pressure from activist investor ValueAct Capital, a 10.8% shareholder, to give it a seat on the board.

Ryanair (LON:RYA) has protested to Google about a travel agent’s online advertising. eDreams advertising on Google was “misleading” consumers, the budget airline said in a statement.

Poundland (LON:PLND) boss Jim McCarthy is leaving after ten years at the helm, and two years since the London stock market float.

Crestfallen Sports Direct (LON:SPD) has dropped out of the FTSE 100 through the blue-chip benchmark’s latest shake-up.
