    UK's Oldest Person, Gladys Hooper, Dies Aged 113

    The UK's oldest person has died at the age of 113. Gladys Hooper, from the Isle of Wight, who celebrated her milestone on 18 January, passed away at Highfield Nursing Home in Ryde at lunchtime.

    The former concert pianist was born in south-east London in 1903, the same year the Wright brothers made the first powered aircraft flight.

    The great-grandmother was the country's most senior supercentenarian, according to the Gerontology Research Group.

    People from the US, Canada, Belgium and Australia passed on birthday wishes on Facebook in January.
    Last year, she entered the record books by becoming the oldest person to have a hip operation at 112, and also claimed: "I don't feel any different to when I was 70."
