    A 105-year-old woman has been discovering how WhatsApp helps her to stay in touch with relatives during lockdown.

    Eileen, a resident of a care home in Buckinghamshire, said it was "wonderful" to be able to talk to her daughter on a tablet which the care home provided.

    The technology has also enabled other residents to speak to relatives living in New Zealand, South Africa, Spain and Australia.
