Merely the fact that it's the Daily Mail, and reading the headline
alone make me think there is probably a lot less to this than it
seems. In other words, it's probably rubbish or at least grossly
exaggerted.

Bizarrely, the Daily Mail (or was it the Sunday?) had a well written
story a few days ago.

I hear the post office's pension fund is under enormous pressure
because so many postmen live such long lives. Putting postmen in vans
will release the pressure on their pension fund.
