Library book returned after 55 years on loan

A library book, originally loaned out for two weeks, has been been returned - 55 years late. It was borrowed in 1958 from Witney library in Oxfordshire and finally given back by an elderly lady.

She was told by staff that she didn't need to pay an overdue fine - which is thought to be about £900!
