Stanley Lucas: Europe’s oldest man celebrates 110th birthday

Breaking News

Europe's oldest man, Stanley Lucas, has celebrated his 110th birthday in his home town in Cornwall and attributed his long life to fresh air and good country food.

Mr Lucas, who is also believed to be the world’s third oldest man, said he had never smoked, enjoys only the odd glass of sherry, and had never travelled far.

He has received seven cards from the Queen, the first when he was aged 100, and one every year from 105 to 110.

Mr Lucas, who was born on Jan 15, 1900, played bowls for Cornwall in the 1970s, and continued the sport until he was over 100.
