Brit, 102, Emigrates

Eric and wife DorisA 102-year-old Southampton man is set to emigrate to New Zealand. Eric King-Turner will become the oldest Brit to emigrate when he sets sail on Saturday.

He will make the six-week voyage from Southampton with Kiwi wife Doris, 87, to start a new life 12,000 miles away.

Retired dentist Eric, who will turn 103 weeks after they arrive, said: "Being in the Guinness Book of Records is not important.

"What's important is that when I'm 105 I don't want to be thinking, 'I wish I'd moved to the other side of the world when I was 102'."
