Age is no barrier to former ballet teacher Muriel Green who still does daily morning stretches - at the grand age of 109. She lives at Arden Nursing Home in Hunton Bridge and is thought to be the oldest person in Herts.

Care home manager Theresa Tayag said: “She is a really amazing lady.

“There are times when she is talking with the fairies but 70 to 80 per cent of the time she still knows.”

Born in London, Muriel lived in Abbots Langley from the age of two when her father purchased Duck’s Farm.

The widow, who never had children, lived in Kings Langley before moving to the care home.

Muriel celebrated her 109th birthday on Tuesday with care home staff and a long-term friend who regularly visits.

The oldest person in the UK is 113 year old Ethel Lang, who was born in May 1900.
