109-year-old Chevin Housing Association tenant Ralph Tarrant is officially Britain’s oldest man!

Mr Tarrant, a Chevin tenant for the last 25 years has two children, seven grand-children, 11 great-grand children and three great, great grand-children.

All the major news networks have featured him, as have the local and national papers. And even the University of Boston has taken DNA samples to try and discover the secrets of his longevity.

This is Ralph’s second longevity record after he and his wife Phyllis were Britain’s longest married couple at 78 years before Phyllis passed away in 2011 aged 102.
