Women could be owed thousands in pension payments

Women on £1-a-week state pensions could be owed tens of thousands of pounds, the BBC has learned.
Until recently, Carole Davies, 76, from Merstham in Surrey, was told she was entitled to less than £1 a week.
But Mrs Davies, who retired in 2003, had been underpaid, not knowing she was actually eligible to receive a married woman's pension.
Earlier this year, she discovered she was owed £61,000 and entitled to £82.45 per week.
