THE impressive feat of reaching the age of 105 was made even more spectacular by a Worthing man who still drives and cooks his own meals.

The independent and “quite incredible” Harry Jamieson celebrated his 105th birthday on Saturday (June 30) with a big plate of mussels at The Fish Factory, in Brighton Road, Worthing.

Harry still drives to the shops and to see his 92-year-old wife Joan at Longacre Nursing Home, in Chute Way, and his daughter Barbara Leggatt said the reason he has done so well is because he stays active.

Harry is a father of two, grandfather of three, and great-grandfather of five, and spent most of his life working as an electrical engineer, with a brief spell in the police, and the Navy, where he worked on developing radars.
