A four-times record-breaking pensioner has died aged 108.

Incredibly, Jack Reynolds, from Derbyshire, made it into the Guinness World Records four times between the ages of 104 and 107.

Daughter Jayne Goodwin said his neighbours organised fireworks and enertainment in a tribute to her father.

When he was 102 and became one of the oldest people to take part in the ice bucket challenge wearing a Union flag and his underwear, raising funds for research into motor neurone disease.

Two years later he made it into the world record books when he became the oldest person to get a tattoo.

And on his 105th birthday he became the oldest person to ride a rollercoaster, later riding a zip wire in 2018.

And last year he became the oldest supporting artist on a TV show with a stint on Hollyoaks.
