Bert Hazell has died aged 101

Thanks to Well-Behaved Orphan* (in a comment elsewhere on this blog) for alerting us to the news that Bert Hazell has died. Hazell was Labour MP for North Norfolk between 1964 and 1970 and, as he was 101 when he died, is believed to be the longest lived former MP in history.

His death was reported in the Yorkshire Evening Post, and there is more information about him via the links in a posting I wrote last year.
