Dancing with oldest replacement hips

The world's oldest replacement hips are still serving their owner well - 67 years after he received them.

Norman Sharp, 91, from Trowbridge, Wiltshire, was the first person to get an NHS hip operation in December 1948, aged 23, after suffering from septic arthritis as a child.

He now holds the Guinness World Record for the longest-lasting replacement hip replacement - and is still dancing.

BBC Points West's Fiona Lamdin put it to the test.
