Due to the falling strength of the pound, British expats living abroad who claim UK state pension have lost out on over £10.6 billion in income since 2007, according to leading foreign exchange specialist HiFX.

The research, published by HiFX, analysed the top 13 countries where some 2 million British expat pensioners live and receive the state pension, finding that the value of their monthly payments has significantly dropped in value.
