School maths leaves too many young people unprepared for the work and for running their lives, the charity National Numeracy says.
A maths charity hopes its new mobile gaming app will help boost numeracy skills among young people.
National Numeracy has developed a game based in a virtual film set with the player taking on the role of runner on their first day of work.

The free game is aimed at 16- to 25-year-olds.
