A woman thought to be a housing association's oldest tenant has passed away at the age of 102.

Chorley Community Housing resident Elizabeth Banks moved into the Gloucester Road property with her husband in 1968.

She died last week, leaving her daughter Eileen as her only surviving relative.

Eileen said: "I remember that when she first moved into the house in Gloucester Road it was just a dirt road outside."

Richard Houghton, CCH Director of Operations, said: "We are sorry to learn of Mrs Banks’ death and our thoughts go out to her daughter. Along with her late husband Mrs Banks clocked up a remarkable 45 years as a tenant, firstly with Chorley Borough Council and then with CCH."
