Latest inflation figures are "dreadful" say Saga

Commenting on the latest inflation figures, Dr Ros Altmann, Saga's director general said:

"The latest inflation figures are dreadful - yet it is astonishing to see an RPI inflation figure of 5.3% and CPI of 4% (double the Bank of England's target) being greeted as great news.

“There seems to be no relief in sight for hard-pressed savers, still suffering from interest rates well below these inflation figures.”
