Almost a third of UK workers plan to take on a second job to help pay the bills and cope with the harshest cost-of-living crisis in memory, according to new research.

A national survey of 2,000 workers by Indeed Flex, an online marketplace for flexible employment, found that 32% of people plan to do temporary work of top of their existing job to boost their income.
