Meet the British family spanning six generations

A family from Yorkshire is thought to be the only one in Britain with six generations alive at the same time.

There are 47 family members; the eldest is great-great-great grandmother Hilda Hanson, who is 103 and known as “little gran”.

The youngest, baby Finley, was born on Christmas Day.

Grandmother Sue Godward and her daughter Niki Mellor managed to baffle 5 live’s Eleanor Oldroyd with their confusing family tree.
