Women can expect to take on caring responsibilities for an older, sick or disabled relative more than a decade earlier than men, a report concludes.
Research by Sheffield and Birmingham universities shows half of women will care by the age of 46, compared with half of men, for whom the age is 57.

The research suggests two-thirds of UK adults can expect to become an unpaid carer during their lifetimes.
