UK sisters are named the world's oldest siblings

Two sisters have been officially recognised by Guinness World Records as the oldest siblings in the world.

Dorothy Richards is 108 and her sister Marjorie Ruddle is 105.

They were born and brought up in Northampton before attending colleges in London and eventually returning to the East of England to look after the family home when their mother died.

The sisters celebrated their record with a tea party at the Peterborough nursing home where Mrs Ruddle lives.

Jeremy Cooke went to Peterborough to meet them.
