The number of people living to 100 in the UK has increased by 71 per cent in the last ten years, and has shot up more than five-fold since the Eighties.

There are now more than half a million people aged 90 and above living in this country, with nearly 14,000 of them aged more than 100, compared to just 2,500 in 1980.

There are also 710 people who have lived beyond their 105th birthday, up from 340 ten years ago.
