BBC News - Old meets new in digital divide
There are 9.2m (18%) adults who have never used the internet and 27% who do not have internet access at home.

And age appears to be the biggest factor. According to ONS figures, 99% of those aged 16- 24 have used the internet, dropping to just 40% of those aged 65 or over.

Charity Age UK is so concerned that it warned that unless more can be done to help older people get online "there is serious concern that they'd become more and more marginalised members of society".
