Discover the Secret of a Long Life
LIFE expectancy in the UK is on the up with more and more of us living to a ripe old age.
Feature editor Joni Ager investigates what is the secret to long life.
EMILY Head is no ordinary great-granny.
She may be 90-years-old but you won't find her sitting in her armchair by the fire all day watching Countdown.
In fact she'd give most people half her age a good run for their money - literally. You're just as likely to spot her running for a bus as queuing up for her pension.
Emily has been running a women's keep fit class for 40 years and she still dons her legwarmers now to run two sessions in her town of Corby every week.
She said: "I have always been active ever since I was young. My late husband was a racing cyclist so I suppose the family has always been fit and healthy.
"I think it is important as you get older to keep going. It helps keep me supple and I don't suffer from any aches and pains - which must be put down to the exercise I do."
