Subject: UK's oldest man dies at 108: Long life down to 'hard work and vinegar'

Written By: Philip Eno on 12/01/16 at 7:36 am

The oldest man in the UK, who credited "hard work and vinegar" for his longevity, has died just weeks before his 109th birthday.
Jack Mansfield died peacefully in his sleep in Etwall in Derbyshire on Sunday, his family said.
The widower was a "strong-willed" man who lived on his own until earlier this year, when he went into a care home.
He leaves behind six children, 10 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild.
His youngest son Richard, 70, said his father attributed his longevity to hard work and using vinegar.
"He had a bottle by the bed until the day he died. He would rub it on his knee and drink a little bit from time to time.
"He swore by vinegar."
