Clegg makes 30 pension gaffe

Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg slipped up during an interview at the party's conference - when he said the basic state pension was just 30.

The true figures are 90.70 a week for a single person and 145.45 for a couple. Mr Clegg later told the BBC News Channel he had got it "spectacularly wrong".
