Nearly One In Five British Adults Have Never Used The Internet, Statistics Show

"Nearly nine millions adults in Britain have never used the Internet, statistics show, exposing the rift between the old and the young when it comes to embracing the digital age.

"The figure represents 17.4 per cent adult population, the Office for National Statistics said in a report released on Wednesday, with the over-65s the least likely to have been online.

"Age UK said that while it was good news that many older people were online, it was vital that access was widened, as 5.7 million over-65s still had never used the Internet."
