Retirement is usually a time to take things easy and enjoy a well-earned rest. But more pensioners are committing crime and being arrested than ever before. In the last twenty years the number of over 60s doing time for a criminal offence has trebled, in part because sentences are becoming harsher and longer. The so-called grey crime wave could be because there are now more pensioners around to commit crime, or that more and more are struggling to make ends meet. But the over 60s are now the fastest growing group inside British jails. While some senior citizens are turning to crime in retirement, what do career criminals do when they hit pensionable age? And what is it like doing time in your autumn years? Growing old disgracefully, meet the old-age drug dealers, brothel keepers and con artists.
