The government will fail to meet its child poverty reduction targets by 2020, according to a new report.
Alan Milburn, chairman of the social mobility and child poverty commission, said it was "inconceivable" that the targets would be met.
He said young people were increasingly missing out on things their parents took for granted - like home ownership and job opportunities.
