Tony Daley’s health and fitness tips: How to deal with aches and pains

As lockdown eases, those aches, pains and stiff joints won’t – especially for slightly older folk like myself.

I have had quite a few friends in their early 50s telling me that they are suffering new problems with bones and muscles after ten weeks of sudden regular exercise.
