One of London's oldest residents is celebrating her 105th birthday.
Jessie Moore, who's from Dagenham, insisted on throwing a party to mark the occasion so more than 70 members of her family joined her at her local pub.
Despite her advancing years, Jessie is still independent, living alone in the house she shared with her husband for more than 60 years. Her secret to a long life? Looking after other people apparently.
