83-year-old becomes UK's oldest living kidney donor

An 83-year-old man has become the oldest person in the UK to donate a kidney while still being alive, the NHS Blood and Transplant service has said.

Nicholas Crace, from Overton in Hampshire, is also the oldest "altruistic" kidney donor - he will never meet the recipient of his organ.

He told BBC Breakfast why he decided to donate so late in life.
