Grandmother becomes oldest Bristol University graduate

A grandmother who nearly died three years ago due to a kidney infection has graduated with a doctorate in education from the University of Bristol.

Peggy Styles, 86, from Failand near Bristol, took eight years to complete the course and has become the university's oldest ever graduate.

She said it was "the ultimate challenge" for her.
