This 83-year-old great-grandad, definitely not over the hill, has been crowned the world’s oldest HGV driver.

Richard Henderson was delighted to learn he had earned himself a place in the Guinness Book of Records for his career in the haulage industry.

The pensioner has to undergo a yearly medical to ensure he is fit to stay behind the wheel of his HGV, but he intends to keep on trucking across the UK.
