Rutland's oldest resident dies

The Rutland Times reports the death of Emeritus Professor Harold Lawton at the age of 106. A veteran of the First World War, he was later asked by Cosmo Laing, the Archbishop of Canterbury, to make a transcript of Gladstone's daily journal.

There is more about this remarkable man in his Daily Telegraph obituary. Meanwhile, Lord Bonkers appears to be immortal.
