Michael McNamara, 73, has claimed he was told by a member of staff at Alnwick’s Jobcentre Plus that they couldn’t help him fund a driver CPC course because he was too old.

A Department for Work and Pensions spokeswoman didn’t comment on the case, but said Jobcentre Plus offers people help to get work.
