One of the oldest women in the UK, who recently celebrated her 110th birthday, puts her longevity down to a daily glass of whiskey and quitting smoking six years ago.

And each afternoon at her care home in Hull, Dorothy Peel has a sherry.

“I don’t drink much at all. In the evening, I drink a small glass of ginger ale but it’s a bit too gassy, so I put a bit of whisky in,” the Daily Express quoted her as saying.

She met husband Freddie when she was bombed out of her house during the war.

“We were happy, though we didn’t have any family. He died before he was 100, I was very sorry when he went,” she said.
