Deferring LGPS beyond retirement age?

I have an LGPS pension which I stopped contributing to when I left my job a year ago and just a few months before I turned 66. I have no plan to retire until I am at least 70. How much will my pension increase each year by not taking it? Is it better to take it and invest the income in another private pension for 3-4 years?
