A woman believed to be Cumbria's oldest resident is celebrating her 110th birthday today.

Amy Johnson was born in Westmoreland county in Jamaica in 1907.

54 years later, she moved 4,500 miles to Westmorland in Cumbria in 1961!

Since then, she has lived in the village of Shap, where she is know to everyone simply as 'Grandma'.
