Britain’s oldest man has died at the age of 110 years and 63 days.
Former church minister Reg Dean lived through two world wars and 24 British prime ministers.
Mr Dean, who was born in Staffordshire on 4 November 1902, died on Saturday at his home in Wirksworth, Derbyshire, his friend John Neaum said.
The former army chaplain became Britain’s oldest man after the death of 110-year-old Stanley Lucas, from Cornwall, in June 2010.
