A man from Galashiels, who's believed to be Britain's oldest ice-cream van operator, took a rare day off to celebrate his diamond wedding.

Family and friends helped 90-year-old Adam Kelly celebrate his 60 year marriage to wife Betty, by having a special party.

The couple were married in 1952 at Davidson's Mains Church in Edinburgh.

They met after Adam came across Betty waiting at a bus stop whilst he was carrying out his milk rounds, and offered her a lift.

Adam has vowed never to retire from his ice-cream round in Galashiels, despite his age.
