Many pensioners are leaving the countryside for London.

Meacock recently helped a couple who sold a 6,000 sq ft property in Sussex to buy a much smaller Victorian terraced house in west London.

Don't you want that to be your house, rather than somewhere else where you aren't sure what they are getting up to? The aim is to get kids off the screens and outside.'
